: Squeak (rattle) over driver side in roof

My 2007 Escalade developed a rattle in the roof right above my head. I took it to the dealership and they could not figure it out. After rooting around in the roof liner for months, I finally figured out that the noise was coming from the aluminum support brace that runs from one side of the sunroof to the other to support the rear dvd screen. I took a piece of rubber hose and jammed it between the brace and the roof strut and that fixed the problem.

Wonder if they are willing to pay you for fixing your own truck when they can't find the problem.

I had the same rattle in my 2009. They replaced a couple of clips I believe and the noise has mostly went away. I hear it every now and then when I first drive it in the morning, but its gone after a mile or two.

Yea my second 07' I had to remove the headliner because a wiring harness from the rear dome light would bounce off the headliner in the winter and make this banging noise, and it was a real pain to remove.
