Do you have Mk2 Clio?
Do you find you Sunroof rattles as you drive?
If so this a nice and easy fix for it, takes all of 5~10 mins
So lets get started........

All you need is approx 2" screen washer pipe or something similar.
2 cable ties.

First of all does your sunroof handle look like this? if so this fix is for you.

ok now open the roof, you should see the top hinge pin, this is the problem. As you can see in the photo where is has been rubbing and taken the black paint off.

now take the washer pin and put a split in it all the way down, I used model car fuel line but its all the same sort of thing.

and its just a case of fitting this over the hinge pin, making sure the split in the pipe is facing up.

once done us the two cable ties to stop the pipe coming off when you open the roof.

and thats it all done and no more rattles.
Hope this has been some use to you and you have no more rattles.

I've tried out the above hoping it would be an easy fix and it seems to work... for all of one evening.

I took the car to work this morning and the banging and rattling seems to be 10 times worse, what did i do wrong?

Its driving me nuts!!!
