Rattling sound in my sunroof over bumps! Agh!!!

Hey Everyone

I have a rattling problem in the sunroof... it doesn't rattle when closed or when it is open (sliding open) but it rattles when it it TILTED open...
When I go over moderate to rough bumps in the road, it makes a juddery rattling sound like metal hitting against metal.

Has anyone tried to adjust their roof to get rid of rattles? Any tips or tricks? I don't want to take the headlining out... there are some bolts on either side of the sunroof which can be seen from the inside (three on each side I think)... can these be used to adjust the roof?

Anyway... if anyone has had a similar rattling problem and has any ideas or a solution, I'd love to hear about it!

I have a similar issue, looks like the pins pops are getting loosed.
If I push the side of the roof up, the noise stops, but in about a week starts again.
Any other ideas ?

While your on the sunroof topic...

My sunroof doesn't auto stop when closing.
If I completely open the sunroof it aotu stops twice, same on closing. But when it's moving to its close position I have to guess when it's closed.

Any ideas?

The sunroof on our Bravo always rattles, and it always leaks..

I tend to avoid cars with a sunroof as they quite often cause problems.
