Does anyone know if the front moonroof latch can be adjusted? I'm getting wind noise from it when driving over 45kph. I noticed that if I pull down on the handle the noise lessens/stops. It looks like the metal tab that retracts when you press the button is not resting against the latch but is about 1cm below it, allowing the glass to get sucked upwards at speed. Thanks!

Mine makes the same noise. I’ll be investigating very soon, I’ll let you know how I go.

I had the same issue after leaving it open for a while, it seems there is a slight design lesson in there.

The rubber strip at the front bends up when the roof is up, so when you put it down the old rubber o longer touches and seals the paint, leaving a 1-2mm gap most of the way across the front.

This slot then causes a huge noise when going along, The noise is reduced significantly by pulling the blind across however.

My current solution is to use some 2mm x 6mm foam tape and fitting it carefully (sticky side up) around the perimeter at the front. Then I peeled away the sticky paper making sure it stayed in place and it has been much better.

It quietened down from a tornado to some gentle wind noise with the foam (silent now with the blind closed) so worth doing!
If you have a careful look you can see the gap.

Another fix maybe to remove the rubber entirely but that would need investigation without the front headlining in.

I did the foam tape fix and it definitely helped! I used a plastic spudger tool from a trim clip removal toolkit to lift up the rubber while tucking in the tape. Haven't been on the highway yet but can already tell the sound had been lessened significantly. Thanks for the tip GPW!
