    Cracking sound coming from pano roof

    I've noticed lately my car makes a loud crack sound coming from the back and from the panoramic roof.
    And as I'm driving I hear small cracking sounds coming from the roof again but when I open the sunroof they mostly go away. Anyone else notice something similar?

    It really helps others if you give the year of your car since certain years may have this in common and help others guide you. There are also threads with similar issues. Did you type in the 'Search' box on the right side of this thread?

    I have a 2013 sxl and have noticed for 4 weeks now a chatter coming from mine. It's driving me nuts.I think I found where mine is coming from and mine seems to be from the front one. Not sure how to fix it. But taking it in for service next week and going to have them look at it.

    Is it like metal on metal? Does it go away when you crack it open slanted, and come back when the glass is closed/level?

    There are lots of great things to learn about while browsing this forum.

    However almost every issue you can think of has most likely been discussed in detail at some point on the site.

    This is why it's always a good idea to just do a quick search using the search box in the top right corner before creating a new thread.

    However with that being said, I went ahead and searched and came up with a bunch of threads which you can see below:

    1) Creaky Sunroof?

    2) Pano sunroof 14 optima creaking sounds

    3) What a nightmare - sunroof noise super annoying

    4) Going back to kia for the 4th time. Same issue. Creaking noise

    5) Sunroof noise all the time

    6) Kia doesn't know snow, creaking sound from panoramic roof

    Do you live in a hot area ?

    I live in Australia and find on hot days my sunroof creaks, I link this with the glass expanding and contracting as the heat escapes whilst driving and it's cooling down. Once it's cooled down its fine.

    No issues with mine live in Houston area. Try putting silicon lubricant on the seals.
