Fellow sedan owners, have you had this problem with your rear deck cover?

Sorry, I forgot to take pictures today, but... Do you know the like six or seven mesh vents near the base of the rear window? Well, all of mine have completely deteriorated and collapsed. Needless to say it looks like crap . Has anyone else encountered this?

How you do you remove the rear deck cover? Is there a more durable material that I can use to repair the vents that will stand up better to sun exposure?

I've read about this so you aren't alone. Do a search and you might find the thread about it.

Thanks! I guess I am glad I am not alone

I found the part number, DM5Z5446506AB. To those that have ordered this, I assume that all the pieces come in one package and that I do not need to order multiple units?

This should be covered under years not miles I put over the 36000 miles in a year this piece has nothing to do with miles just sun and cheap material think they would cover it NO...

Yeah, I managed to find it after searching a bit because none of the links to the TSB worked. The PDF is stored on some members Google Drive: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0Bwdb...SDA/edit?pli=1

Also, to answer my own question I guess the replacement cloth comes in one big section and not six individual ones

My brother has his replaced on his 2012 SFE when he had 35,950 miles on it. The new one is already starting to do the same thing after 1 year.

Mine did it too, got it replaced at the dealership for free along with having them paint where the taillight rubbed on the paint. New one looks good. I wish there were some aftermarket options for this.
