2020 Volvo S60 T8 Lengthy-Time period Service Replace | Breaking and fixing the sunroof

Professional tip: Don’t play with the wind deflector in your 2020 Volvo S60. The identical goes for many delicate and/or digital issues in vehicles. Elements break. You get unhappy. Cash should be spent, and you progress on. 

In case you had been searching for an instance of this, take our 2020 Volvo S60 T8 long-term take a look at automotive. A person (we’ll go away them unnamed to guard their dignity) occurred to be sitting within the passenger seat ready for some takeout meals over the weekend. It was a sunny day, so the sunroof was open on the Volvo. The nameless particular person then caught their hand via the sunroof and pressed down on the higher body of the wind deflector that pops up routinely with the sunroof. What pops up, should pop down, appropriate? Sure, nevertheless, it’s clearly not meant to be pushed down with a human hand. The sunroof is supposed to softly glide again onto it and return the deflector to its tucked place.

As quickly because the deflector was depressed by hand, we heard what seemed like plastic snapping, and I regarded as much as discover a semi-mangled wanting arm that’s meant to carry the deflector up. Oops.

I obtained out of the automotive to see that the little arm mechanism that was beforehand multi functional piece was now disconnected and in two items. Makes an attempt at closing the sunroof had been rejected as quickly because the glass approached the disconnected items of plastic. There’s a slot that the one arm was beforehand tucked into, nevertheless it had popped out. My short-term treatment? Maintain the items collectively whereas the responsible occasion rolls the sunroof shut. I managed to stay them collectively lengthy sufficient for the sunroof to correctly shut. Phew. That would’ve been unhealthy if rain had been on the best way.

On Monday, I name the native Ann Arbor Volvo dealership to get this discovered. That is the place the story will get just a little bizarre. I referred to as close to to closing, hoping to make an appointment for later within the week. As a substitute, the vendor says they’re free this instantaneous and tells me to carry it by proper now. I cruised over there, and the second I walked to the service desk, the service supervisor introduced a technician over to the automotive. 

We’re all masked up, and all people within the vendor was gloved, too, maintaining our distance from each other. The technician initially seen that there are some clips lacking from the wind deflector body. These clips, pictured above the place they’re presupposed to be, hold the 2 items of the wind deflector body collectively. When the deflector was depressed with power, it precipitated the clips to be ejected from the automotive. These clips snapping away was the plastic sound we heard. 

The tech went and popped the clips off a random S60 sitting on the vendor lot after which popped them into our automotive. Fastened. With that, I used to be off. No value, no paperwork, nothing. It was the quickest (and maybe the weirdest) service appointment I’ve skilled. The velocity at which I used to be out and in of the dealership (5 minutes, tops) was astounding and far appreciated amidst the Covid-19 pandemic. I ought to’ve introduced the stopwatch. I simply hope somebody remembers to place new clips on that random S60.
