Question about 2001 Subaru Forester
Initially noise was occurring only when opening ALL the way - solution was to never open it past 1/2 point. now it makes noise as soon as roof starts to open.
Dealer doesn't really want to deal with it. I get vague responses about it will be expensive... but no details. will check clips on sun shade as mentioned in earlier post.
I had this problem with my Scorpio. If you can open the roof electonically to the full extent, then try to open using the mechanical method. Fully grease all mechanical parts, ( loads of grease ) including the mechanical screws that operate the sunroof. Open and close aout 5 times to spread the grease. Get a tube of KY jelly or Vaslilene and really smear it on the felt (or simular, maybe be rubber) edge beading to allow i to fit snuggly into your roof and making a rain tight, this worked for me, hopefully t will work fo you.
Let me know.
