Hi All,

Just started to get a rattle from the sunroof inner shade recently, it gets quite annoying, seems to rattle whether fully closed or open partly, probably just something is loose as it also tends to slide open under hard acceleration. Anyone else experience this on the AUS2004 or USDM2005?

Cheers,

Karl

Had the dealer look at this during 25,000km service and they said it was the runners for the glass needed lubrication, unfortunately they seem to have also lubricated the inner shade slide rails so now every time I accelerate moderately hard from stationery or brake moderately it slides back and forth... :( Anyone know how to add more friction to the shade slide?

saga continues - there's no way to add extra friction, all they did was make it so that the shade clips in at the fully closed position so it doesn't slide open by itself, but if open at all it slides around still. Moral of the story - don't put silicone lubricant on the sunshade tracks - ever :(
