2014 summit is on a distinguished road
Re: WK2 Sunroofs - buzz, squeaks, rattles and other issues

I have a 2014 Summit and some times I get a rattle noise right above my head by the sun visor. I hope I can find a loose clip and pop it into place. I hate like hell to buy a 55k Jeep and have a darn rattle a 300 miles. Sure don't want them to tear the darn headliner out, it never goes back in the same and then there's always the possiblity of getting more rattles or even worse damage to the vehicle it self. I printed off the diagram and I'm going to take it to the dealer have it documented and hopefully I can have a simple, quick fix.

Re: WK2 Sunroofs - buzz, squeaks, rattles and other issues

I had a pretty good creak in my 2014 Summit, especially when the body was flexing (driveways, sharp turns etc). When I took it to the dealer to have a few additional items taken care of , I added this to the list. After a few days, they decided to replace the entire tract system for the sunroof, as they were unable to get the creak to go away. I should pick it up again tomorrow and we will see what change that makes.

Hello all. It seems I'm not the only one having a newly discovered water leak on the driver side sunvisor bracket. :-( I looked at the other threads here but I cannot figure out where the drain holes are. It's 2011 JGC Overland with the normal sized sunroof. Very frustrated. I appreciate the help locating the drain holes.

Re: WK2 Sunroofs - buzz, squeaks, rattles and other issues

Is the rattle more pronounced the the interior shade open or closed?

The same for me. They had to replace the entire track system as recommende in the bulletin; which I dreaded. The interior shade could not be replaced ss taut/tight as from factory which pissed me off. But what choice did I have. I now just keep the interior shade open.

Re: WK2 Sunroofs - buzz, squeaks, rattles and other issues

My sunroof on my 2013 GC was creaking, Marino Chrysler in Chicago replaced the rack assembly, creak is now gone with headliner in perfect shape. I'm very happy.

A new motor is shipped uncalibrated with no vehicle cycles having been run. After installation and connection of the wire harness, the following steps must be taken to initialize the new motor and module unit.

NOTE: Verify that the battery is in good condition prior to performing this procedure. Do not leave the vehicle on a battery charger while performing this procedure. If the voltage at the sunroof motor and module unit drops below 11 volts or exceeds 15 volts at anytime while this procedure is being performed, the motor and module initialization procedure will not be properly completed.
