Default Sunroof Rattle

My '08 GV has developed an annoying rattle in the sunroof. It seems to be getting worse. Any ideas how to fix it?

Thanks.

Can you induce the rattle by hand (i.e. gently shaking or pushing against the glass)? If you can, it could be loose mounting bolts so I'd check them before going any further. See first diagram below for location (the bolts are TORX® T25).

The rest of the assembly doesn't appear to have any other adjustment options so if it's not the mounting bolts then something has come loose or worn inside the mechanism or track. In that case, your only option may be to seek help from a dealer or a specialised sun-roof installer.

I too have a rattle to my sunroof. Mine is 2010 Grand Vitara with only 1200 miles on it, so I don't see that it would be something worn on it. I will try the bolt tightening thing. If I push up on the back side of the sunroof it stops rattling, and when I don't it starts rattling again. Hope the bolt thing is a fix for it. Let me know how you make out with yours.....

Just curious if you found a fix for the sunroof rattle?? Mine still rattles. I haven't taken it to the dealer yet. I have a 2010 Grand Vitara and I couldn't find any bolts to try and tighten down. Hopefully I can find a fix for this.

Well it seemed to go away... and then it came back. To cold in the garage right now to look at it.

I had the same problem, and went to my mechanic. He lubricated all the moving parts with spray grease. And all the noises went away. I ve heard no noise since then. (since 2 months)
