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

Hi Everyone, when investigating my rattling sunroof I noticed the the two fasteners on the sides of the sunroof are able to click in, however the three along the rear of the sunroof do not have a respective piece to connect to the headliner. The fastener piece is missing from the headliner. Has anyone ever replaced these on their own, have any tips?

Thanks!

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

Cancel that. The rattle is back and worse then ever it now does it when I open and close the driver side front and rear doors after sitting in the sun (as well as bumps over somewhat unsmooth surfaces).

Chrysler customer care has been sympathetic but they're now at the point they want to replace my entire sunroof. I obviously don't want that done due to the potential for leaks down the line. I have many videos of the noise happening driving and while doors are open and closed as its sitting.

The location of the rattle has been known from the start - directly above the drivers rear seat. I am able to pull down the roof liner and jam a microfibre clutch on the other side of the sunshade track. It seems to stop the rattle.

After 4 years you would think Chrysler would have this fixed. The best part is I named my dog Summit so once I dump this POS for an X5 or something I will be reminded for years every time I call my dogs name how much of a shitty purchase this was for 62k CAD.

After 2 headlight swaps, radio issues, my back window being replaced and now this roof issue I'm convinced Chrysler has no idea what "the best of what we're made of" should stand for - quality.

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

I just purchased a 2016 Limited with the panoramic sunroof and I am already getting the creaking/popping sound. Wondering if anyone has yet to find a DIY resolution? All of my fasteners are in place and I feel like I have it narrowed it down to likely being located near the end of the track just above the rear passenger seat. I'm trying to exhaust all DIY options before taking it to the dealership.

After reading a number of posts where people took their vehicle to the dealerships for the fix, but received it back with impaired sunroof functionality or damage to the headliner, I am a bit hesitant to go that route. Similar to Hollywood's sentiment.

My next thought is to remove the fixed pane and see if I can get an overhead view of any rubbing that I can't see from just pulling the headliner down a bit and looking up. I have tried every shim possible as remediation so far to no avail.

I appreciate any insight or suggestions.

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

Welcome to my world! My roof was dropped twice - once to tighten all the sunroof bolts and the other to verify everything checks out and to replace the roof - which I don't want to do. My rattle is located directly over the drivers side rear seat. Some days it does it non-stop others it doesn't seem to occur as much but each time the dealer has had it it's been evident and is acknowledged to be a problem. I have videos of me able to push up and down on the sunshade track to make the noise. Also videos of the noise happening just over normal road bumps on a highway.

The fix I have found without going through the risks of replacing my roof was to fold a microfiber cloth = couple times, pull down the roof around the rattle, jam the microcloth behind the sunshade track (so it doesn't catch it) and it seems to apply enough pressure to stop it.

I really don't want to replace my whole roof due to the potential for leaks in the future. I'm hoping this fix holds up. The noise comes back every couple weeks due to the cloth moving but once I put the microfiber back in place it seems to stop it again. I know the shop I am dealing with said Chrysler told them sometimes closing the sunshade only and inch from its fully open position is enough to stop the rattle. Try hitting the close-then open button really fast to park it 1" from the back they said that can sometimes be enough pressure to stop the rattle.

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

Was wondering if anybody has dealt with the Sunroof Inop issue, have a single pane sunroof on a 2015, Sunroof doesn't work at all. Took it in to the dealer today to have the transmission recall performed and to have them check the sunroof issue. When I picked it up he said I'm going to have to reschedule because they are going to have to drop the headliner and do more investigation maybe replace the motor. I'm over 36,000 miles so no warranty

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

The dealer wanted $1200 in parts (the entire track + glass, both of which are on backorder) and I can't even imagine how much in labor to fix the rattling issue I am having.

I took matters into my own hands.

I grabbed some cardboard and "accordion folded" it a bunch and jammed it nicely into the track on both sides - I've attached a photo of one side. No more creaking or rattling of any kind coming from the sunroof any longer. I can still use the front portion of the sunroof, too, assuming I only want to crack it. Honestly though, I never use my sunroof and have the visor on it at all times (which still closes 100%).

Feel your pain. I would send those pictures in a letter to any talking head in chrystler or regional and see if you get any where. BBB and state attorney general. And take your time and don't close it out too quickly in the BBB.
