I hate creaking and rattles so much I have sold multiple cars, It sucks why can't auto makers figure it out these issues out during testing, Mabey they need to hire some folks like us to test.

Hoping the V stays tight.

I feel your pain Turbol15 and good luck.

lol........... I had a similar noise... It may be the plastic sunroof frame. Pull the front out and down and run a strip of soft light grey foam weatherstrip (Not Rubber) across the full length of the front edge.. The kind of foam weatherstrip with sticky paper on one side. Match it and cut it full length and then stick it to the long front area of the sunroof frame then snap it back up where it meets the interior light overhead console. If you take your knuckles and tap the overhead console where it meets the sunroof frame you will be right on the noise. If not, then I'm not your issue. This was how I fixed mine. I got the insulation at autozone. The sunroof frame should have come with insulation in the first place. My noise is 100% gone now.

Also you may want to check the sun visor. The drivers side visor rattles in my 09 v sedan & I took me a while to figure it out. It goes away if I unclip the visor & push it away from the bracket just a little, so I leave it that way most of the time.

I actually thought the noise was from the sun visor originally as it went away when I pulled it down. I replaced it and the same noise. Took me a while to pinpoint it to the sunroofs frame. A very tricky noise to find.

Mine started doing it last year, only when it was hot outside. Had it at the dealership but of course, it would not rattle for them.

Now it is doing it almost all the time, so its going back in to the dealership on Friday.

Yep. Very annoying. Funny thing when you open sunroof quiet as a mouse. Try that open your sunroof and see if the noise is still there.
