Do I have the sunroof rattle?

I have the pano sunroof in an Overland. When I go over bumpy road I hear I bit of a rattle that sounds like it's coming from right above my head. Not loud, not terrible, but it's there. Is this the typical sunroof rattle? Or is mine pretty benign?

There should be no rattle from the sunroof or shade.

Re: Do I have the sunroof rattle?

I have the same... Yes, it's coming from right above my head.
At first I thought that it rattles the passenger head restraint, then it seemed the passenger seat rattle, then checked the panoramic roof shutter - is not it ... I noticed as follows, that the sound can be heard if you slap one of the front doors then when the others are closed.
Even when my buddy slammed the door and I was sitting and listening inside, trying to locate a rumble, did not succeed here, but it became apparent that the rumble comes between the roof and headliner, and nothing more ...
What is this crap?

Re: Do I have the sunroof rattle?

Mine rattled as well in the same place. I took it back to the dealer and they found 2 loose bolts. They tightened it using some loctite and no rattle since then.

Re: Do I have the sunroof rattle?

I have the same Rattle in my '11 limited. I've been to the dealer about it five times already. They finally agreed to replace the whole roof with a new one. I hope that doesn't make it worse or turn out to be a mistake.

That seems rather excessive (and scary).
