Re: 54 Clio MKII - Sunroof Glass on Metal Tapping

Thanks for taking the time to reply. The sunroof already has black rubber tubing over the hinge pin fitted by Renault before I received the car.

There is a split in the rubber about 1/3rd of the way across its length which seems to be general wear and tear.

For reference this is about 3 - 5mm thick black tubing with some sort of silicone grease covering it. I'll see about getting some new tubing however I doubt splitting the tube will help seeing as the one already on it isn't completely split and still possibly causing problems.

I'll try some tools + some brute force to see if I can't separate the pin from the handle.

Thanks for at least confirming the "creaking" is in fact more like glass on metal. From everyone elses descriptions, it seemed like I had a completely different problem.
