Smile Clio sunroof squeaking

Like a great many other Clio owners, I have suffered from a squeaking sunroof which was really annoying.
Whilst searching for answers on the Internet, I found a very interesting answer to this problem on UTube. It was a short video which recommended removing the sunroof completely (by pushing the sunroof to the first click position and then pressing the small red button) and at that position the sunroof should be able to be pushed up and clear of the catch mechanism. Once the sunroof is removed it is recommended to grease the two front hinges and plastic inserts where the hinge goes into and also check the screws are tight on the hinges and being sure not to overtighten. It also recommends to spray WD40 on the handle mechanism to stop the other inherent creaking problem associated with most Clio's. Hope this helps as it has (thank God) solved my problems with both the squeaking and creaking. Link to UTube site :
