Noises from headliner/Roof - anyone else?

I was wondering if anyone else has noises from their headliner/roof area that sound like a loud drip or tapping and sometimes a ticking/crinkling noise? My 2014 Jeep Black Overland with pano roof on 65+ degree sunny days lately has been exhibiting these noises even when the vehicle is stopped and turned off. I am guessing the sun/heat are causing something to happen up there but unsure what. I will mention this to the dealer but was wondering if anyone else has this issue and how was it addressed?

I at first thought this was the pano roof, but I hear the sounds even with the vehicle parked and shut off which I would think rules out the pano part.

Re: Noises from headliner/Roof - anyone else?

The spoiler on mine likes to pop and make noise sometimes after I move it out of the garage and into the sun. It's pretty loud and annoying for a while, but it eventually goes away. I wonder if we're hearing the same thing.

Mine was easily identified though, because I can recreate it pressing on the spoiler piece and actually hear it from the outside when it does it on it's own.

See if that may be the cause for you.

Maybe it is the spoiler though it sounds more in the car and I don't hear it much outside. I wouldn't mind a few minutes of this but sometimes these noises go on for 25-30 minutes and are very loud.

Re: Noises from headliner/Roof - anyone else?

I have the same issue on my 2014 Overland. I too notice it when the temperature is warmer and I first bring it out in the sun. It it is quite loud and happens when the vehicle is stationary and also moving. I will check the spoiler...

One of the many build quality issues I have seen. Miss aligned plastic trim on the left side (pulling away from the rubber seal), rear passenger seat leather coming off the frame (plastic tab exposed), passenger footwell trim falling apart (saw similar post today), rattle in sunroof (over passenger). I made the right decision to lease my first Chrysler product...

Aside from the quality, I like the looks, features, driveability,etc..

Same thing happening to mine too. Sounds like water drops. It happens when I'm moving or sitting still.

Though I don't wish issues on anyone elses JGC I am glad to hear I'm not the only one with this. Hopefully we can pinpoint what is causing it and find a fix. I thought mine went away after washing the vehicle and making sure the rear spoiler wasn't loose but it was back today after a 40 minute highway trip.

Re: Noises from headliner/Roof - anyone else?

The noises I'm hearing are definitely confirmed to be coming from the spoiler on mine and it's where the window meets the spoiler, causing rubbing from tension or something. So I sprayed some WD40 all along the area and haven't heard it since. Possibly give that a try and see if it may help any of you others with the problem that think it's from the spoiler.

haha - glad I saw this thread. I've had this issue for several months and I always hear it about the same time once I leave the office (and am actually in the sun).

I'll have to try the wd40 trick.

I sprayed some stuff all under the spoiler area and it appears to have stopped. I hope this did the trick!
