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

My 2011 panoroof just started rattling this past summer but now that the weather is cold, the rattle is gone.

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

Mine just started making cracking noises while I'm driving. If I press up on the glass while it's making that noise, it stops. When I release it starts back up. Annoying.

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

Twice now with my 2015 limited, the pano sunroof has opened randomly. First the shade opens partially, then after 30 seconds opens fully and then the glass opens in the tilt up position. I can't close it right away as the controls are inoperative for about a minute.

Has anyone else experienced this?

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

the pano sunroof issue has been a freaking nightmare. 1 year ago they had my '12 JGC for over 3.5 weeks replacing the sunroof. They ordered a new sunroof, installed it, and realized the existing motors were not compatible with the new sunroof, so they had to remove it and order all new motors. Problem solved....or so i thought. Fast forward a year, I'm on my 2nd week of waiting while another new pano sunroof gets installed. Why can't they fix the issues coming from the factory???

I love my Jeep, but it's been in the shop every other month. I've had to replace the sunroof 2x, i had a short circuit in visor which produced a small electrical fire, problem with the AC, problem with key fobs not working properly (still not resolved after 2.5 years of trying to fix this)


f'ing brutal....sorry for the rant

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

I am a new to Jeep Garage and a love it. I have a 2014 JGC Limited and have a complaint about the sun roof. Not sure if I am being picky or if others have experienced it as well. With the sunroof open at speeds below 50mph it's perfect, but above 50mph the wind noise becomes so loud I need to close it if I wish to hear the radio or hold a conversation with somebody. Any input or ways to determine what is "normal" and "not normal" would be helpful. Thanks very much !

Crack the rear windows open, it relieves cabin pressure and reduces noise.

Thank you, I will give it a try and see if it alleviates the wind turbulence

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.
I still question why anyone would buy a brand new vehicle. They devalue so much in first 2 years

Buy 3-4 years old under 30k miles and you're set. You'll save almost 50%. And obviously buying new doesn't help as far as not having rattles and issues

My 2011 was bought for $58,400 according to the sales receipt I found. I paid $26,300 with 31,200 miles in October 2014.
Car fax shows original owner had to take it in for a handful of fixes like this.

Thank you OG buyer, you absorbed the upfront profit from Chrylser for me!!

Personally, i don't like getting someone else's hand-me-down's specially when god knows how or what they did with it before.

Well maybe if it's an SRT lol.

Gotta pay to play so they say.

Hand me down?!! Haha someone needs a lesson in financial decision making. Hey if you want to burn up $50K plus on something that two years from now will be worth $25k, good for you.
