Annoying rattle(s)
OK, its coming (I think) from the RH side, inside roof, way back, sounds like way back towards hatch where the moonroof visor slides back. Makes noise when visor is open or closed...anyone else have this one, and if so, any quick fixes?

I could take it to the dealer, since its under warranty, and probably will, unless someone has already conquered this, and could save me some time.

Creaks tend to happen in the long run. Maintain and greese your rails once in awhile. Gets kinda dirty in their.

the only rattles i noticed when i had my celica was the sun roof. It always rattled when it was open, and it wasnt the glass rattling it was somewhere in the lights above the rearview Mirror.

I have this same annoying rattle. I bought my celi with 9K miles on it and didn't notice it when test driving (it was too much fun). Can't figure out exactly where it comes from - and it doesn't rattle consistently - even on rough road. Makes it harder to figure out. But it is in the same place as yours.

Doc, you totally got it...its not all the time, and sometimes it won't even do it on rough road. At first, I thought it was heat sensitive, because it seemed to do it only if it was really hot, but lately its done the reverse -acted up when cool, perfectly fine when hot. I saw a post about removing the headliner, so maybe that would identify what this is, but that is out of the question for me, especially when its under warranty - let the dealer do that. Of course you know it will behave itself and not make a sound when I bring it in.

I had a nasty intermittent rattle on my '94 civic hat the dealer couldn't reprowhen I fist took it in. That car still has that one rattle at 105,000 miles, and now I drive a convertible that ratttles a bit with the top. If it's a small rattle I just don't care anymore ...

Try opening your moonroof, and cleaning all of the dirt and gunk that has built up around the inside edges.

Also, in that TSB, it addresses the top of the hatch glass rattling, which can be fixed with felt.

That may be the issue with your car.

Unfortunately, its not the roof...it is behind, IN the roof where the visor retracts in. I'll take it to the dealer this week
