Icon5 Sunroof vibration???

My sunroof started vibrating today when opening. Could i just fix this by regreasing the rails or is this bigger problem???

Thanks in advance!!

Re: Sunroof vibration???

Clean/regrease the rails and see how it does after that. If it doesn't fix it, you might have to take it apart and give it a real good thorough cleaning.

As long as it's white lithium grease it'll work just fine.

Re: Sunroof vibration???

Old thread, I know, but does anyone have any advice on the best way to get in there and clean out any gunk before re-greasing? because the rails are a c-channel, was thinking I would have to use cotton buds with a bit of degreaser on them.
