I have had my G6 with panoramic sunroof to the dealership twice with rattling noise. According to my dealership GM posted a bulletin on December 14, 2005. My dealership has ordered parts to correct this problem and I am waiting for them to call me to bring my car in to fix it. They mentioned that they may need to replace the headliner? I will post my results asap.
They may need to replace the headliner because they have to completely remove it to insert the washers, and will probably ruin it in the process. :D

For the record guys, dealers do NOT have to remove the headliner for Panoramic repairs. All they need to do is drop it to access the mounting points. If they do remove the headliner, it's alot of extra work for them ($$), and they can do it without damaging it if they know what they are doing. :beer:
Obviously never been to a dealship in the KC metro area, eh? ;)

Panoramic People,

I hate to break it to you, but the problems are not in the sunroof itself. The problem is with the sunroof interface to the vehicle that's causing most of the noises. Replacing the sunroof module is just going to get you the same thing, maybe worse.

There is a TSB out there to add mylar washers to 10 fasteners that attach the sunroof module to the roof body. These helps create a 'sliding' surface for the fasteners, as the torsional twist in the body is too much for the sunroof to take.

Don't let your dealer fool you buy saying replacing the module will fix the problem. Adding the washers is the right fix, and it's relatively easy.

Hope this helps!
Yeah, I posted about this back in November. It's not a TSB though. SM showed it to me - the bulletin number starts with "GS" - he said that since it's not a TSB it will be available for viewing by dealer service departments only.

Finally got around to doing it this week. The one thing that has been bothering me about this car has finally been taken care of. I guess I'll have to start talking nice about my dealership now. :eek:

I've had my 05 with panoramic rook to the dealership 6 times and the only time that it got fixed for more than 2 weeks was the last time i took it. They said they ordered some 75 dollar lubricant and it lasted for about a month. A few days ago i started noticing it again so i called them and now they are working at getting me out of this car and into a new one....im thinking a gtp coupe.... If your not satisfied then threaten them with the lemon law, chances are they will contact GM themselves and you wont have to go through the hiring an attorney and what not. In my opinon the panoramic sunroof is awsome but will forever be stricken with problems, its to much of a headache for me which is why i want a new car.

The dealer never fixed it right, per GM's instructions, or it would have been noise-free from then on. No tightening, no lubricants, just adding a tiny bit of permanent space between the frame and the roof.

Mine is a month and a half out from the "real" repair and it still doesn't make a sound. It's quieter now than it was when it was new.

Wow. Been a while since I've been in here.

Sad to see so many people not getting satisfaction from their service dept.

I'm almost a year out from my "fix" and up to 45,000 miles and not a single noise out of it.


Come to think of it, this service dept. was able to fix a tranny leak under my C1500 that the Chevy dealer could never seem to get.

Kick the dealer, not the manufacturer.
