waterboy54914 is an unknown quantity at this point
Hey all! I'm a Rice Burner convert...I finally woke up and realized Bimmers are where its at. I've owned my 1st 325i for about 6 months and couldn't be happier with it. The only complaint i have with the car is with the sunroof. When its completly closed, it will rattle when going over even the smallest bump. Is there an easy fix for that? Is it the weather stripping that has loosened up or could it be internal bolts loosening up over time? Has anyone else had this problem?

hmmmmm, when its closed hit the tilt button then try to close again, hold the button. see if that doesnt work. now chances are this might have not worked, but its the first check id do. next thing to do is open it up and see if anything is loose. like you stated nuts bolts. etc.

and lastly , id take it to a pro to get it checked. reason is that when it comes to the sunroof, its best not to mess. get the pros to do it.

p.s- welcome to the forums
