Just got off the phone with but the company that's all the weatherstripping they say that only fits from 2010 to 2016 4runner's and the fourth Gen 4runner's does not have a replacement for weatherstripping. Would need to replace the glass and all

I know it is an old post but my roof is also rattling which is too driving me nuts. How about stretching a smaller diameter bike inner tube over the edge of the sunroof and cut the excess, i am thinking this is a better option than taping the edges etc. Ofcourse if it closes after such mode

I think you are correct. I can't find an easy to remove the old weatherstrip. I think it is glued to the glass. Now I got a 2008 weatherstrip sitting in my garage

Yeah the only way to replace the weather stripping is replace the entire glass on these 4th gens.

I have the same “loose glass” sound when closed. Here is a video I made to show how much play I have in the closed position:

Sunroof Rattle

Hello all!

I have a 2003 Toyota 4 runner that I bought from my dad (was my dream truck since we got it, Finally got it!! Yay!!) And last year I noticed the rattle whenever the vehicle is on the highway with high winds as well as when the road is rough it kinda makes a rattling noise. Now one day I opened the sunroof on a amazing sunny afternoon and I heard a pop and this plastic piece fell on me on the driver side now it makes kinda a rubbing noise whenever it opens. I hope it didn't break something important but it looks like a rail cover for the tracks. Has anyone tried to take their older 4 runner into Toyota to get this fixed? And im sure they will charge me. Is it that easy of a fix now? I need this fixed!!

After reading this whole thread, i did the following and IT IS FIXED. THANKYOU.

1. Worked a 5 inch long 3/16"ID 5/16"OD clear hose onto the sunroof rod noted in this thread.
2. Cleaned all the painted areas that the sunroof rubber touches when closed.
3. Sprayed Heavy Duty Silicone on the sunroof rubber that I could get to and also all of the painted areas that sunroof rubber touches.
4. I closed the sunroof immediately after spraying the silicone to let it coat the rubber that i could not get to.

Drove it all over the place with the worst bumpy roads and it was dead quiet.

AWESOME FIX. How many times did I slam my hands onto the ceiling to get the noise to go away????? Same number of times as everyone else.

Just as an update to this, I was having a gnarly sunroof rattle and found it would go away if I pushed up on the glass. Decided to try putting tape on the body around the back side of the glass and found that 3M Super 33+ electrical tape works great. I cleaned the sheet metal with denatured alcohol and stuck a couple layers of tape on and no more rattles. I think what happens is over time the seal gets old, dry and shrinks from constantly being in the elements. Combine that with the hinges that get loose over time and you have a rattling sunroof. Sucks we can't just put a new seal on but the tape works. Black electrical tape certainly looks better than the white medical tape someone used earlier in the thread LOL Now to fix the rest of the rattles in the rear passenger area

Finally fixed it

My moonroof/sunroof rattle has been driving me nuts. I too could push up on it to make the noise stop.

I tried all the gaskets and tubes around the bars in the assembly. I tried using more grease. I tried three pieces of felt under the front windscreen.

None of them worked for me.

I just now used electrical tape all along the back of the moonroof metal opening. I placed three strips from the middle of the driver's side to the middle of the passenger's side. I then placed one more the length of the back side. I sprayed some white lithium grease on a paper towel and applied to the moonroof gasket and the electrical tape.

I live on a long gravel/dirt road in Idaho with more potholes and washboards than should be legal.

Totally fixed the rattle. Absolutely no noise whatsoever. Thanks for the tips and the forum.

The washers and hose on the bars didnít get rid of the rattle. I just used 3 layers of cheap electrical I had laying around On the corners and back side of the glass gasket. Worked to get rid of the rattle. Going to look for a better solution to combat the elements but so stoked the rattle is gone.
