The sunroof rattle is gone!

Finally took my WK2 into the dealership yesterday to fix a horrible rattle in the sunroof.

Turned out it was the fixed glass part of the sunroof causing the problem. It wasn't insulated all the way around, so when the vehicle shifted weight, the sunroof was rattling against its housing.

Post insulation... it's perfectly quiet.

Just wanted to pass this info along in case anyone else is having a similar issue.

Re: The sunroof rattle is gone!

Would love to know what was involved in the fix (removing the headliner, etc.?)
