2012 Headliner rattling "Chatter"

Hello and Happy New Year! It's been a while since I've posted.

About 3 months as ago, I started experiencing a interior rattle. Over the last few weeks it's gotten worse and with the recen't holidays, I finally had some time off that allowed me to isolate the noise.

Discovered the headliner on the passenger side was starting to separate from the ceiling frame causing the rattling. Confirmed by applying slight upward or downward pressure on the headliner (see pics) the rattle would stop. Apparently seeing I have the panoramic roof there is a form of a frame on the headliner and mine separated enough from the roof that it was rattling or "chattering". Dealer resolved it today. Said they hadn't seen that before.

Anybody experience this? If so did the dealer resolve and has it stayed resolved?

Still love the GC

Re: 2012 Headliner rattling "Chatter"

Milous post about this a little while back. He also attached some PDF files showing the location of the clips around the sunroof opening.

Basically, there is something like 17 (or so) clips around the sunroof that snaps the headliner into the frame around the sunroof. A few people have found that the clips weren't completely snapped into place.

I had a developed a rattle as well and found that 11 of the 17 clips were not snapped in completely. Once I snapped them all into place the rattle stopped.

Re: 2012 Headliner rattling "Chatter"

Thanks for the info kbench55,

I had searched on headliner and saw "Dealer Ripped" and "wrapping headliner" but not the one from Milous. I'll search on his user name.
