My mk1 Laguna had a similar feature in the sunroof mechanism which got stuck and failed to lift one time - a clean and oiling sorted it.

features the Espace clip, in particular about 26seconds and 48seconds in.

Hi Big Dav and Ian

Thanks for your replies. I've looked at the youtube video, and can see what you mean. At the leading edge of my roof, is a blade that lifts as the roof opens, but is only about two inches deep. This means that the wind passes underneath causing the noise. There would appear to be something missing, so a trawl of the interweb is needed. Thanks again for you help.
