Re: Clio II - creaking sunroof - fixable?

Oops!, Sorry should of asked. In that case its the sides of the sunroof cartridge rubbing against the roof. As the sunroof sits down into the hole in the roof there is approx 3mm of clearance on all sides, if sunroof is not sat centraly and is touching roof at any point the contact creates a rattle/squeeking noise.

From inside, remove the beading trim and pull headling down slightly. You will see approx 16 10mm bolts around the base of sunroof cartridge. If you slacken these bolts you should be able to move the catridge slightly by hand. It just a case of manouvering the cartridge around until it feels central. If you use a torch from inside you will be able to see the movement in relation to the roof hole.

Sometimes it can be trial and error and can take a few attempts but is worth it to stop that bloody annoying noise.
