Well, traveling home last night, I noticed an above normal wind noise coming from my closed sunroof. Today driving home from work, I noticed that my sunroof is poking up higher in the back than before, and it can be pushed down with minimal force. When I close my doors, it pops open slightly...

I checked the TSB's and found nothing, but there is something about a leaking sunroof, and describes what to do to adjust the sunroof. Would that apply to my problem? Has/does anyone heard of or have this problem?

I am making a call to the dealer tomorrow, getting it looked at, but just wanted to know anyways, thanks.

Sunroofs are over-rated. What you need is one of these!

Sorry, I could not resist. I would guess that it is best to bring it to the dealer. However, it suprises me that the sunroof pops up when you close your doors. I would have thought that the vents in the car that let air out of the cabin would keep that from happening.

it is a common problem with the cobalts. it has to do with the plastic tracks breaking/cracking in the enclosure. you can get it warranteed if you still have it. if ot, youll be out at least 300 bucks.

Awesome, at least they will know how to remedy it quickly. The car is 3 weeks old for me. Warranty is no issue lol. :p

I am really wondering if the dealer knows wtf they are doing...
I took it in this morning, the tech didn't even see the shifing it does when I open it and close it. He says its normal, and when they looked at the tracking and stuff, everything was tight. He says its all ok and normal.

I swear, I should just fix all my own shyt, probly do a better job of it anyways. :x

Well at least someoone else has a similar afliction... The dealer will attempt to adjust it, but they still say its normal.

Does anyone with a sunroof have this bow in the back / middle? I would like too see a pic if possible. :D

The back of my sunroof pops up a little when I close the door; then it pops back down again. It's the air pressure from the large doors doing it. It doesn't leak, because I was out in a hard down pour rainstorm yesterday, and the sunroof didn't leak a drop.

Big Progress!

So I talked to the Service manager, Sunroof specialist, and the Body work manager, all have had a hand trying to figure out wtf is wrong with this sunroof. What they have determined thus far is this:

*Compared to another sunroof on their lot, mine is not "normal" because its bowed on the back, but to the left side.
*Body work manager looked at the roofline and says its ok,
*Sunroof specialist tried adjusting, nothing can be done to lower it further.

What they suggest is I wait to speak to the GM re that will be there on the 30th to see what course of action he suggests to take. The sunroof guy says to replace the whole unit including glass, tracking and weather stripping.

So on the 30th, I hope I don't have to bitch slap the GM rep if he starts on the whole "its normal looking to me" buisness. lol.

I will keep you all posted on the outcome! Maybe a TSB could come from this? Who knows. :p

Hey guys, I have noticed that a lot of wind noise can be heard from my sunroof area while closed...however, when I looked at the sunroof nothing was out of place...I asked my friend who owns a celica whether he hears wind noise from his sunroof and he doesn't. This is my first car with a sunroof so I don't know what to expect.

I found that my sunroof whistles sometimes. Drives me crazy. Open and close it and it might go away or sometimes gets worse. Only happens at highway speeds but that is where I do most of my driving right now. I cleaned the seal off and it went away for about a week. Then came back. Going to talk to the dealership to see if maybe they have something to condition the seal or something.
