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!

I asked Nissan to do this under warranty to fix the rattle in our sunroof and they refused to do it under warranty.

Re: Rattling noise from sunroof


OK all, I have solved my sunroof rattling noise problem.

It was not a rattle, but an intermittent squeak !
I realised this after a 4WD trip last month when the sunroof constantly squeaked along the trails with each flex of the body and then also started doing it on the road with bumps in corners.

So I asked my local service manager (very helpful guy as always) who suggested the sealing rubber was probably dry from weathering and that I should clean the dirt off the seal and then spray it with SILICONE spray to soften and lubricate it. Anything else will deteriorate the rubber and require it to be replaced.

Well I did this on the weekend and can now say there is no more squeaking nor any "rattle" from the sunroof.

Just hope it stays that way Kev.
Silicone spray is a good product and lasts a long time, but the squeak will come back.
The best product to use is lanolin as it is natural and always leaves rubber soft. You can buy it in a can like bees wax.

Or just find a sheep and rub it on. emoticon

Re: Rattling noise from sunroof


All I can say is WD40 is amazing and there's nothing I haven't used it on which has damaged it except one time I accidently sprayed some in my beer. I find I use it on everything in and around the outside of my Exy. Sunroof seals, rails, rubbers on roof rack, door rubber seals, engine bay cleaner, door handles, key holes, wiper arms (not blades !).
Use a cloth to keep it spread evenly and make sure you don't get it on things like steering wheel, gear knobs, door knobs cos they get slippery. emoticon

Apparently the tricky part is getting the sheep to stick their heads through the sunroof......
