Question Sunroof Problem - Acura Integra

Hi all,

I have a problem with my newly purchased Integra. The sunroof shudders and rattles noisily when opening (closing is very smooth however).

Anyone know what may be causing this and where I should get it fixed?

Thanks

my integra has been doing that for 8-10 years now. at first i was like you and tried all these sprays and it would come back. i left it alone and nothing has happened, it's just annoying, don't worry about it.

Thanks, found a multi-page article on team-integra regarding this problem. A thorough job involves disassembling some parts first before applying the lube, might be a PITA..

wouldn't recomend any spray type lubes. They're typicaly not heavy enough. When i see honda sun roofs chatter while opening, i lube the slides with a heavier grease. Ususaly wheel bearing grease
