So, I've been dealing with this rattle and squeak since the weather got cooler last year. Maybe since September. Could never really locate it, but the rattle seemed to have come from the rear driver's side. Took it to the dealer and they replaced some clips, but the rattle is still there albeit a tad less. I could live with that.

However, today was warm enough to pop open the sunroof. OMG the squeak was terrible. Every bump on the road produced a squeak. A friggin annoying squeak. I closed the sunroof. Squeak is gone. Opened it and the squeak was back.

Any idea would this could be? Something loose? Anybody else experienced this?

Could be the styrofoam panels in the roof liner behind the moonroof rubbing against each other and causing the squeaky noise, I suppose. At least that's what some others have reported as causing squeaks.

I was hunting a rattle down in the back of my 08 for awhile now, I think I've found it on the rear wiper trim cover.. it's loose enough to cause the rattle by hand..
