Your sunroof is suffering from wind impact. Search for "sunroof deflector" in Google and you'll turn up a variety of products that will redirect air while still letting you keep the sunroof partially open. They're also nice because they let the cabin air out without becoming incredibly windy.

Alternately, you could just open it all the way so that the wind can't catch anything to vibrate.

Sun roof leaking water


How to Repair a Leaking Car Sunroof Repairing a leaky sunroof usually leads to discovering that the sunroof is not the culprit of the leak. Instead dirt and debris may be the likely culprits since they obstruct the drainage tubes or the drain channel that are part of the sunroof's water management system. Once these are obstructed, the water backs up and heads for the nearest escape, which may be to the interior of your car. The following instructions are to help you repair a leaking car sun roof.
  1. 1)Use a non-abrasive cleaner with a soft cloth to clean the glass panel and the seal on the outside of the car.2)Open the sunroof after opening the vent shade. Allow the sunroof to open to the vent position but do not let it slide backwards.Wipe and clean the trough that is around the opening of the sunroof. 3)Use a wet cloth to remove any debris that may be preventing a tight seal between the trough and the sunroof's seal.Inspect the seal. 4)Look for any cracks in the seal. If you find any, you will need to replace the seal. Contact the car manufacturer or a repair shop to replace the seal.Check the drainage tubes.5) You can use a small cable or even a coat hanger to gently probe around for a few inches to see if there are any clogs or standing water in the tubes.6)Use a thin cable or coat hanger wire again to try to clear the drainage tubes if they are clogged. Make sure whatever you use does not have a sharp end and apply only a little pressure.7)Verify that any of the standing water in the drainage tubes went down by poking a dry thin cable or wire down an inch or and pulling the wire back out.8)Check that the clogs are completely gone in the drainage tubes by pouring a small amount of water into the tubes.

    How to Check a Sunroof for Leaks There's nothing nicer than a sunroof in your car, especially on a spring or summer day. Open the sunroof and enjoy the fresh breeze. But check a sunroof carefully for leaks before you buy a used car. It's just good business. 1)Open the sunroof to check for leaks when you are shopping for a used vehicle. First of all, make sure the sunroof opens smoothly and closes securely. A good, snug fit with no cracks or lop-sided setting is a good indication that it won't leak.2)Look carefully around the inside edges of the roof of the car where the sunroof opens. Check a sunroof for leaks by making sure there are no signs of rust or corroded metal around the opening edges. Of course, examine this area while the sunroof is open so that you see all areas on the sunroof opening's edges.3)Check the ceiling inside the vehicle when you check a sunroof for leaks. Look for signs of water stains around the inside ceiling lining of the car at the sunroof's site. Ceiling fabric at the site of the sunroof or around the area of the sunroof that looks spotted or has slight color variations may indicate a sunroof leak.4)See if the car's headliner (the ceiling fabric) is sagging. A leaking sunroof may cause water to run inside the headliner. Water buildup causes the headliner to sag over time.5)Examine the floor of the vehicle carefully when you check a sunroof for leaks. Damp carpet or a mildew smell may indicate a leaking sunroof. Also, look for water stains on seats where water may drip down from the sunroof. This will help.

2005 Chevy Equinox sunroof problems


Some customers may comment that the sunroof will no longer respond to the control switch while in a vented, partially opened, or fully opened position.
Cause A software issue with the sunroof control module may cause the sunroof control module to incorrectly indicate a "closed" position, which may result in no power to the sunroof motor.
Correction Verify the customer concern. If a condition is present, replace the sunroof control module with a new sunroof control module, P/N 15847643. Refer to the Service Procedure in this bulletin.
Service Procedure
  1. Verify the customer concern by opening and closing the sunroof. • If the sunroof will not open , check the power windows. - If the power windows are also inoperative, check the fuse. If the fuse has opened, refer to Corporate Bulletin Number 05-08-64-004 to install 30A circuit breaker. - If the power windows are fully functional, refer to "Power Sunroof Inoperative" diagnostics (SI Document ID# 1392967) in the Body section of the 2005 Chevrolet Equinox or Saturn VUE Service Manual. • If the sunroof will open (or is already open), but will not close , proceed to Step 2.
  2. Replace the sunroof control module. Refer to "Sunroof Control Module Replacement" procedure in the Body section of the 2005 Chevrolet Equinox Service Manual (SI Document ID# 1196049) or Saturn VUE Service Manual (SI Document ID# 1710479).
  3. Open and close the sunroof in order to confirm that the customer concern has been resolved.

Are 06 & 07 toyota tundra fuel pumps the same?


I am pretty sure they are a different part... I'm assuming you have a fuel pump for an 06 laying around? You could always call your dealer and get the part number for the 5.7 pump and compare it to the part number on your 06 pump. Unfortunately, I'm pretty sure they are different and you really won't have a choice but to fork out the $600.

As a side note, however, I would really discourage an aftermarket pump. Toyotas in general really do not like aftermarket parts. While they may work for a little while, they can cause other (seemingly unrelated) problems that eventually trace back to an aftermarket part. Even spark plug wires make all the difference.
