Question about Toyota Avalon
Yeah the problem comes from the metal expansion as you have rightly thought. When its hot the metal expands allowing the seal to hold propperly, when its cold and it shrinks, the metal contracts slackening the seal and it rattles, the problem will get worse and even start to leak..
To Fix this (which you will have to do every few years or so)
1.) open , remove the moon roof housing assembly to expose the rubber seal and bolts.
2.) enusre the bolts are tightened (I assure you some are loose)
3.) remove the seal and reseal it using ribbon sealer or the silicon gasket maker.
4.) use a can of foam and spray in the open areas (inside the hood) Where it wont be seen.
5.) let dry reassemble.
Ps the less you use it the better off you are.
If you'r not sure what your doing, take the car to a garage and inform them about the fix.
