Question Whistling Sunroof

Hi all- I just bought a '08 Cobalt Sport and LOVE IT

However...the sunroof will start whistling when going 65+mph. Is there anything I can do do fix this? I tried to re-adjust the sunroof, but it will not go down any lower. Also, should there be a little square rubber thing in the back of the sunroof propping it up a bit? It seems like the air is leaking because of that. (Factory sunroof BTW)


Thanks in advance!!

I found the same thing but only when it was slightly open, when it was closed tight the whistling stopped, and yes my car does have the rubber square on the back

does yours go up a bit if you push on it in the back? also, if you shut the doors, does it pop up briefly? I'm wondering if it isn't shutting all the way...

hmm maybe that is part of it..it's getting to -10F at nights and usually around 20F during the days here. I think I still might mention it to the dealer again..the thing seems too loose because I can push up on it lightly and it'll go up about 1/8 of an inch. Also the car has 48K miles on it, so I only got a 3000mi/3month warranty.

I have the same problem, I think it's just the cold weather, it never did that during the summer months

You may have to give them crap about the TSB on it. They prob will neglect to mention it.
