When I took it in yesterday for the passenger side airbag recall, I noticed the moonroof making a slight grinding noise when moving into the upward vent position. I asked the service advisor if the rails require grease and he said they do. Today I put some lithium grease inside the part on each side that actually makes the roof go up and/or back (not the rails themselves since there doesn't seem to be a problem sliding forward and backward). I greased both sides pretty well but it didn't make a difference at all.

What the roof acts like is if you were to slide down a slide on your bare butt. You know how it causes friction which, in turn, causes you to kind of bounce down the slide and hurts like hell? I thought maybe the weather stripping was catching on the front of the roof so I used ArmourAll and cleaned all around it. Nothing.

It only does it when moving up and down in the vent position.

Any ideas? It's annoying as all get out.

Amazing, That no one has replied Dawg in nearly 20hrs.

I'm adding to this to bring your post back up on the New Posts Search.

Good Luck

I checked the SM, I'm not seeing anything that may help, here's the Trouble Shooting page

Thanks, mak. I saw that when I was searching for a solution in another thread. I think Speed posted it a few years ago. I think I'm going to end up taking the glass out and cleaning everything really well and then spraying it all with silicone grease. Hopefully that'll take care of the problem. But it'll have to wait until after vacation. ;)

Just to close this out, with no further intervention on my part it's working normally now. I'm not sure if the new grease I applied worked itself in or maybe it was a humidity issue but whatever the cause, it's cured.
