    Sunroof rattle...

    I recently noticed that there is a rattle in the sunroof when going over bumps, etc. This only happens when the sunroof is open or tilted upward.

    Is there a fix for this or, will I just have to endure this annoying rattle?

    Thanks.

    Re: Sunroof rattle...

    I just pick up a 2002 TT X-50 & I have the same rattle- this must be common problem - car is still under waranty so I just have to find time to take it in - my wife has a 2002 Boxster S & it also has various rattles- I think the low profile 18'' tires & sport suspension play hell on the interior parts

    Re: Sunroof rattle...

    I had same problem that was not "duplicated" by service techs, so therefore not fixed on first visit. It was the same too in that the rattle only occurred when the roof was open or tilted.

    I realized (as did the service tech) that with the roof open placing your hand on the headliner and giving it several "manual bumps" so to speak showed clearly (when a comparison manual bump to another car in showroom) that something was for sure wrong. They disassembled the roof again and found that the mechanism/track at the very rear was broken and when the roof was open, it was coming off the rail at the back. Needless to say they fixed it good as new.

    The service department at Barrier Porsche in Bellevue, WA can advise your service tech as I'm sure it's the exact problem I had.

    I have a gt 2 and have a rattle in the dash on the passenger side, sounds like creaking, I want it fixed but I am afraid of having the car damaged, some thing scratched or chipped or ripped and I have taken everything in the area apart and it won't go away so I imagine only the dash coming out will fix it?
    Its very annoying but does quiet down alot after the interior temp warms up. Any opinions? should I be afraid to take it in for service?

    How about the windshield?

    Re: Sunroof rattle...

    I actually had thought of that do you think that is a warranty item?

    Re: Sunroof rattle...

    Yes, perhaps it is the windshield attachment tab problem!

    The windshields in my '99 996 Cab and '01 TT were both replaced under warranty because they developed a "clicking" sound made as the chassis torqued over uneven road surfaces. It seemed to lessen as the car warmed up.

    The problem was adhesive failure at a lap joint between the glass surface and some chassis-attach-point mounting tabs (or clips), which are bonded to the glass. When the adhesive fails, the glass is free to rattle against the two position extremes between which it is captivated, even though the movement may only be a millimeter or so. As the chassis warmed up, either the clearance diminished through thermal expansion or a thermally induced chassis twist used up the rattle room and made it quieter. The only field-fix known to the dealer was replacing the windshield!

    Now, I think the '01 TT needs it yet again

    RC, or others -- Is there any improved windshield glass attachment methodology in newer series 996 cars of which you are aware?
