  1. G'day, The sun shade in our car has been cranky ever since we brought it home in October, but has been a relatively low priority item on my to-do list. Until yesterday, when the rear spool completely came free and fell on my head while driving. It looks as though the two rear-most mounting posts on the driver's side failed, and this likely allowed enough play for the spool to drop out. Does anyone happen to know what type of plastic the mounting strips are made of? There are no discernible markings on the components other than part numbers. By feel and appearance of the break it reminds me of ABS, but I'm no expert. If possible I would prefer to use a solvent cement for a lasting repair, but will see how methacrylate holds up if it's an unknown.
