Didn't GM test these roofs before they put them into production???
It rattles like an old Model T Ford. Does anyone have a solution, Gm dealer dealer said there was no adjustment in them. Is that True???
Thanks

Thanks, looked through it and the fixes looked kinda difficult. Will Pontiac do the fixes under warranty?
If you're still under the 36 month/36,000 mi warrenty they should do it. If you bought an extended plan from GM, you should be okay. Don't know if third party warrenties will cover it.

Just to give a positive experience in all this, my neighbor with the white G6 has the pano roof and I asked him about his, given the troubles mentioned on here, and he said he hasn't had any mechanical issues, just that it's a little noisy (wind) but liveable :)

I think they are awesome but a PITA. When I ordered my car back on 05 I thought I had ordered it. WHen it came in it was the regular sunroof and I was like WTF!!!

We went back to the paperwork and the guy messed up and thought I wanted the regular sunroof and I had signed it so I missed it to.

Soooo they wanted to make me happy so they were gonna order another or find one but then I discovered that the Pano was a $1400 (if I remember correctly- as its been a few years lol) option and they said they didnt charge me that....so Im sitting there in the office looking out the window at this gorgeous G6 and thought SCREW THAT and my mouth just said "nevermind...Ill take the regular sunroof" and pointed at my car.

I still think Pano's are HOT!!!

I have the rattling noise more than anything. It's not noticable unless I don't have the radio on, which is almost never. But I do plan on getting it fixed eventually, unless the extended warrenty thing I bought doesn't cover it, then I'll just live with it:rolleyes:

Just to throw in my 2 cents, I also have a pano roof - t'was the main reason for buying that option (aside from the video that introduced it):
I've not experienced any of the aforementioned problems to my roof. I open it when the weather permits & prior to my warranty expiring, I had the dealership lube the track. Hope this helps someone... :rolleyes:

Strangely, ever since it cooled down to the 70s from the 90s it hasn't been rattling near as much. So if I took it to the dealer now they would of course not be able to reproduce it and I'd be out a day without the car.

Just an Update, Thank you all for your response, but thanks to KB-G6 for the solution. Took the bulletin to the Pontiac Dealer, they kept the car 3 days, but it quiet as can be now!!

Hopefully it will be a permanent fix. Alot of people that had the procedure done to the pano roof said it eventually came back. Hopefully your will stay fixed.

Pano sunroof stuck....

My panoramic sunroof is stuck shut (only after being stuck open for a bit...). It wasn't opening properly for a while and I had to manually pop the first tile up before the rest would slide back. I figured it just needed to be lubricated but even after lubricating it, the first panel wouldn't pop up. Then the back panel started sticking but when I went around to the back and gave it a little help it would pop up and work fine... Then one day I had it open and went to close it and it started to close then opened itself back up. After playing with it for a little while it finally shut... on the weather seal. So now the weather seal is stuck under the back panel and it won't go all the way down. Its still leak proof, just the panel sticks up a few cm. After that happened, I haven't been able to get it back open. It tries to open (it makes noises) but then it doesn't. I've tried helping it a little by pushing up the first panel like I normally do but its sticking really hard and I don't want to break it... Any suggestions?

Ya.. go to the dealer.
If its giving you that much of a problem, i would rather pay to get it fixed, then pay for a new one.

Or... just live without the sunroof and pretend that you just have a glasstop car.
