156 sunroof

My car is fitted with aircon and a tilt n slide sunroof.
It doesn't close properly when in slide mode (I have to give it a push)
The sliding cover also seems to be at fault. I would assume by looking at it that it runs on some kind of sliders but it is all over the place when I attempt to move it.
Also, when it is closed there is a whistling noise at speeds over 40. Any ideas how to:-

a) allow the roof to open and close freely

b) stop the whistling

Thanks in advance

Re: 156 sunroof

sunroof seal for the whistling, they cost a fortune though.

the sunroof blind problem is something my car had whenh i bought it, i pulled the blind off for now until i can get a chance to refit it correctly on its runners.

your sunroof may not be closing correctly because it is experiencing excess friction, use silicone spray.
