Default Any Audi service bulletins on the broken sunshade clip problem?

I know that this issue has been beaten to death on the forum, but I was wondering if anyone is aware of factory recognition of the problem?

My dealer hadn't heard of the issue, so they're opting to replace the entire front sunshade. Seems futile, since the first clip only lasted 4 weeks.

Default Replacement units have metal pins in the clip instead of plastic.

Also there's a bulletin that modifies the repair procedure so that instead of replacing the entire shade (involving removing the headliner and more), the front support containing the clip is replaced. Link below.<ul><li><a href="http://audia3.net/misc/audi.tb.60-06-04.pdf">click</a></li></ul>

Thanks MikeSS. I'll get a copy of the bulletin to my dealer on Monday.

Can anyone please post up the TSB again - my shade clip broke today and this link is dead.

Thanks much.
