2004 ION-2 Quad Coupe
Dizzy 04 Ion 2 Sunroof clunking while driving

I got my 04 Ion 2 about 2 years ago with 56k on it, now was 82k and maybe 6-9 months ago when i have my sunroof either all the way open or cracked and i go over any sort of bumps my sunroof makes a very loud clunk sound, almost sounding like its going to break off. I've never had a sunroof prior to this car, and i have never heard this noise from any of my friends who have sunroofs.

I have already checked all of the screws around the glass and on the track that i could get to, everything is tight, and the glass does not seem to move if i try to push it up or down. This is just starting to get annoying, especially living near Newark, NJ where the roads are just complete crap and i love my sunroof being open.

Thanks for the replies!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Remove the glass and have someone operate the sunroof while you watch what happens. It is a pretty simple mechanism.
My lock broke on the passenger side, and aside from replacing the whole cradle, not much I can do, so I just adjusted the glass lower in the roof line to aleviate some wind noise.

I know it has been a while since i started this thread but i finally figured out what was wrong. Two of the three brackets that hold the glass to the module snapped. So I tried to use the poxy weld and that held until the first big bump in the road. So next spring i will be getting a new sunroof module from GMParts4U.com
