We propose a microscopic theory of the interaction between long-wave molecular phonons and electrons in fullerides in the presence of disorder. Phonon relaxation rate and frequency renormalization are discussed. Finite electronic bandwidth reduces phonon relaxation rate at (Formula presented). Electron-phonon coupling constants with molecular modes in fullerides are estimated. The results are in good agreement with photoemission experiments.
