2012 Slide roof just broke. One week out of warranty...

I went to wash, wax it, and while there I decided to open the roof up. Well, when the back was coming forward it snapped. Came out of track. A triangle wedge broke, as I think the pins go in it to slide back and forth..
Why the hell did I buy this POS.
Any idea what the cost will be to service the roof.

Well, hopefully cost will be recovered in resale. As soon as it is fixed, done, gone..

Since your just barely out of warranty, you might as well call customer care and see if they will cover it. I have heard stories that they will covers stuff like this. The worst they can say is no so you might as well try

I emailed them last night, but will call Wednesday. I have two appointments. One with Hyundai dealership where i bought it from, to see what they want to do as I bought warranty and they have done all work there. They are Hendricks, and the Jeep Hendricks is right next door where appointment is set up for following day. Just covering bases.
I was able to get roof slid back. Since it went sideways, it came out of track. The passenger side cable is not pulling the slide at all, so it may have broke. even with glasses, its very difficult to see what happened on the right side.
Very frustrating to say the least.
