    Re: annoying creeking near sunroof

    Got my car back this PM and guess what? IT'S QUIET AS A MOUSE!!
    Only got to drive approx 20 Km (13 miles) but, believe it or not, not one creeking sound from the sunroof! Even over especially bumpy, cracked roads and in/out of my driveway.

    Also, my passenger door is silent for the first time. "Lower Arm" recall done at same time. According to service tech, they spent 12 hrs just on the sunroof.

    Bravo to these Cadillac techs!! Now let's see how long this will last!!!!!!!

    Will keep you posted.

    Re: annoying creeking near sunroof

    I'm looking over the work order/invoice and trying to decipher (it is all in French) what was done.....so, here goes.

    Took of the head lining and the glass......unglued the S moldings on all corners....worked on glass module....opened something with tick line....reinstalled all parts....reinstalled molding with 2-way tape, install rubber and glass of roof.

    Maybe this makes some sense to some of you guys, I don't really know.

    seems to me like they knew what they were doing.

    i hope they have a TSB open for the sunroof now.

    thanks and congratulations! hope the noise doesn't come back.

    I have the same thumping noise, sounds like the tire slapping the tar in the cracks. At first I thought it was the load leveling system pumping up. Check this: close sun roof but leave slider open. When noise starts, open your window a bit. The noise usually stops for me. Also if you push up on the front corners of the glass while it is making the noise it should stop. This makes me think that the seal on the sunroof has shrunk up and there is just enough play that the air pressure makes it thump like it does.
    I will be bouncing this theory off my local Caddy Service Dept. and will let you know if they have any brilliant ideas.

    Does the build date have anything to do with the creak. Mine is 2/04 and I have it.

    Re: annoying creeking near sunroof

    My build date is 4/04. And BTW, never had a thumping noise, even with the sun shade open (always) or closed. It was a definate creek.

    But, now it is gone!!! Hopefully it will last.

    Re: annoying creeking near sunroof

    If your crack is coming from the front=passenger side:
    a. There is a 'torx' screw/bolt in the corner, it's kind of hard to see from the outside, as the roof rail is in the way. But, that could be loose. I had a similar 'rattle'/ creeking sound - tightened it up. No rattle/creek.

    I had a contact at the suppliers plant - they were fielding a number of 'tech' questions about the roof..(can't do anything else, he was let go today..)

    Re: annoying creeking near sunroof

    Cadillac got back to me yesterday about my post to them on cadillac.com concerning the craking sound many of us have experienced. They stated that they had no information about this but told me to bring this issue to the dealer. I am sure that the dealer will have no idea how to fix it but here I go - got the appointment on Monday.

    I already brought mine to the dealer (See earlier posts) I am supposed to hear back from Cadillac today with a resolution or at least an update. I will let you know what they say.

    I drove an 04 V6 AWD SRX for a couple hours on tuesday while my CTS was in for a recall, and did enjoy the vehicle. It had the ultra roof, and it DID make noise . I tried it with the roof open and closed, sunshade open and closed, and got creaking and rattling in all positions. This is something I could not live with on a car I was driving regularly. If I do decide to trade for an srx, I don't want one with the ultra roof.

    Re: annoying creeking near sunroof

    Howdy all.

    We too have the ticking noise from the roof on our 94 SRX. Our dealer has been beating his brains out trying to fix it. Determined that the noise was coming from the top of the B pillar. There are two welds up there, and they postulate that the welds may have come undone. They tried to get expandable foam into the space, but the space between the two metal roof plates is too narrow for the foam to get into. Then they tried injecting Loctite into the space with a syringe; no fix. GM Zone Rep says they are getting increasing complaints about this situation.

    Dealer has been nothing short of fantastic about this and is working very hard to a) make us happy and b) work the problem. All other manufacturers and/or dealers would have done the "could not duplicate on ground, ops checked good for service" thing (in aviation we call that 'pencil whipping') and thrown it back in our faces. Moritz Cadillac in Fort Worth, TX has gone above and beyond trying to fix this. Will keep you posted.

    Mike

    Will keep everyone posted.
