Icon5 Moon Roof Lubrication

I looked in the service manual on page 3-2 and the moon roof is not listed. Does anyone know if the service manual gives any information about lubricating the factory moon roof?

if the sunroof is jumping or studdering while opening, then you need to regrease the tracks.

it would be a lil more helpful if u said what kind of grease yogi. he is asking us b.c we would be a lil more helpful that ppl at a parts store. u can use pretty much any type of grease u want.u can use bearing grease or any kind that will stick on the track pretty much.

lithium grease is the general lube recommended by the service manual. It will depend on what part you are lubricating though. just use good judgement to figure out which parts need WD and which need the lith grease. lithium grease is a lot thicker and designed for parts that arent quite as precise (such as door hinges). And obviously use the WD for the more precise parts. WD will collect gunk faster though so you will have to clean it out each time you are lubricating.

white lithium

I looked at the sunroof on my mom's new Honda and it has white lithium on the sunroof tracks. I find it strange that it is not mentioned in the service manual.
