Cool Broken wind deflector clip...

I have also been a victim of the infamous broken wind deflector clip issue. I have read lots on this forum and before I found the actual part number of the clips I need, but I cant seem to find the part number anymore. I can fix the issue myself, just need to be order the parts... Can someone shed some light on my dilema?

Subject: Wind/Air Deflector Bracket on Sunroof Module Broken (Replace Bracket)

Models: 2006-2009 Chevrolet HHR


Some customers may comment that the sunroof will not close because the wind deflector won't fold down properly when the sunroof glass closes.


Attachment 4236

The end on the wind deflector retaining bracket may have broken off, which causes the wind deflector to function improperly.

Remove the headliner following SI procedures.
Open the sunroof and protect the interior.
Clean the sunroof tracks around the broken bracket.
Tape off the area around the bracket to contain the drill shavings in the next step.

Attachment 4237

Using a 1/4 inch drill bit, drill off the head of the two rivets.
Vacuum the drill shavings.
Using a small drift, pound out the rest of the rivet in the sunroof module.

Attachment 4238

Attach the wind deflector to the new bracket and clamp the bracket in place.
Using the holes as a guide in the sunroof module, drill 1/8 inch holes through the bottom of the new brackets.

Attachment 4239

Install two 1/8 x 3/8 inch long rivets (obtained locally) through the BOTTOM of the sunroof module to the new bracket.
Apply weatherstrip adhesive to the top of the rivet head.
Replace the bracket on the other side following steps 3 through 10.
Important: Make sure the tracks are clean and no metal shavings are present.

Cycle the sunroof several times to make sure the sunroof functions properly.
Reinstall the Headliner following SI procedures.

My warranty doesn't cover this item because it's "trim" or a "hinge." Are those part numbers correct?
