Paul, I don't think that metal bar that the plastic attaches to has any reason to catch water. Reason being I can drive with the sunshade slid back. The trough is now all the way back in the roof. No water collects there. I ripped mine out of the 2000 originally before I replaced it. Otherwise, yes all it does is slide the sunshade back and pushes it up an inch when you close it.
I wish there was a way to adapt one from another FoMoCo product, like a Continental.
