Re: Rattling noise from sunroof


I opened both so I had access through the roof to the track. I really didn't want to advertise this until I had a rattle free couple of weeks but so far 4 days later and no rattles. If I did manage to bend the track at all, it would have been ever so little (ie less than 1mm in the middle of the track).

No hammer or any other tools were used emoticon

The track was the track for the shutter.

EDIT: typo corrected

Hi Ron,

Is it still rattling?

Which way did you bend the blind tracks?

Thanks

It did once but it is certainly a lot quieter. I tried to twist them up and to the outside of the car. What it really needs is something sticking between the blind track and the inside roof but it is not easy to get to.

Re: Rattling noise from sunroof


One thing I observed while travelling on some god forsaken country road between Warwick and Casino last week was I developed a rattle in the roof. Was rattling while the shutter was open with sunroof closed, but gone altogether with the shutter closed (and sunroof closed.)

It was driving me INSANE because it's right near your head obviously.

So I opened the sunroof at the rear and ran my finger around the rubber seal to check it for damage. All I got was a filthy finger (minds outa the gutter guy's!)

But upon closing it, the sound had gone! It was a definate RATTLE sound, not a squeak!

It appeared later in the week again in Brisbane, so I cleaned the rubber of the filth it collects and the roof seam. Again, the noise dissapeared.

So it seems to me when the rubber gets filthy from normal grime, it vibrates and causes a rattling noise. I would not have believed it if I had not seen it for myself. So for all you people with intermittent noises comming from the roof, try cleaning the sunroof gasket rubber. Worked for me.

Hope this helps someone,

Best wishes,

Re: Rattling noise from sunroof


Had a look at this yesterday and here is the amount of dirt on the seal at the corners.

I've cleaned it off and will see how my rattle goes.

One thing I have noticed about the rattle is that it seems to be worse if the car is sitting in the sun for a few hours rather than first thing in the morning or if it has been raining and not very hot.

A follow-up on this rattle.

It seems to be worst when the car has been sitting in the sun on a hot day.
Park it in the shade and let it cool down and the rattle either disappears or gets much quieter.
I never have this rattle in the morning and always have it in the afternoon when the car has been sitting in the sun.

Guys,

I found the fix for the sunroof rattle emoticon

Bulk up the space between the lining and the roof with dense foam. This what Nissan has done and it worked!
