jq740635 is an unknown quantity at this point
Sunroof is annoyingly squeaky over the front passenger corner, especially when cold out. I push up on that corner and can identify it as the trouble area. Is there a cable limiter that is not pulling that corner tight? Any input is appreciated. The car has been flawless otherwise.

have u tried lubing the seal that goes around the lid with some gummiphledge or some sil-gluide? just a thought.. maybe that would help. Hard to say w/o hearing it or experiencing it for myself.

The thought did cross my mind but really would like to figure out the source of the problem. My concern is will the lube start collecting dust and dirt and eventually making the problem worse as wear occurs.

the lubes that I am talking about are for the seal and they are absorbed into an old dry seal refeshing and softening it, they should not attract dust. Also make sure that the seal has small ridges in it by design. If it is a smooth flocked seal then it should be replaced with the updated "ribbed" seal.
