Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I prefer to work when others don't, I am here around lunch and after dinner till after midnight.

When the shade is moving is it continuous or jerky?

When feeling around in the rear can you tell where the noise is coming from exactly?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
NO the shade works up and down properly. The noise is coming from somewhere in the trunk area and it vibrates slightly. The worst thing is the loud knocking sound 32x when sometimes put in reverse.

This is going to be the shade motor or the linkage it moves to blame for this concern. I have attached some links to help if you plan to address this yourself.
