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
Gonna try black electrical tape when my Durapore wears out. I just used it because that's what worked getting rid of the rattles in the dash of my Tundra. Can't see it when the sunroof is closed anyway. Does the adhesive on the electrical tape maintain adhesion when the summer comes and the roof gets super hot?

My '03 has sliding glass has been rattling since I've owned it and found a '04 in the junk yard so I pulled the sunroof cassette. I'm hoping by swapping out the '04 unit into my '03, the annoying rattle will cease. I just read the TSB on curing this rattle but failed to inspect the '04 unit to see if the TSB was applied to it at the factory.

Anyway, I"m keeping my fingers crossed.

Here's the TSB for folks to refer to as necessary. It speaks of doing some simple things but the main thing is the lack of lubrication under the wind deflector guide block. It also shows the placement of a plastic/vinyl tubing around the wind deflector guide rod. Some folks put plastic washers or rubber grommets around this rod to decrease their rattle.

While the headliner was dropped, I took the opportunity to clean the rodent nest that was on top, run the video camera wire along the ceiling edge to the front, wash all plastic interior panels in the bathtub, vac/clean years of offroading dust from behind the plastic interior panels and finally, apply Rattle Trap sound deadening matt to the ceiling and to the sides.

I'm curious about your experience dropping the headliner...what it a huge pain in the rear?

I don't think it was a PITA, say, compared to dropping the Tcase Admittedly, I practiced in the junk yard when I pulled the sunroof cassette so I was more confident and took a lot of pics.

One of the biggest thing to dropping the headliner is not to break it. I mean you can bend it but don't want to put a huge crease on it. I tied straps and rope around the whole roof/ceiling to support the headliner and to support the sunroof cassette during removal and installation. The headliner can't be easily removed from the vehicle due to the wiring harness that goes to the second row dome light and the entertainment system console gizmo. This harness is glued to the backside of the headliner. Nice going Toyota!

There are four color matched plastic clips toward the middle and rear of the ceiling that should be popped out using a trim removing tool. This is the tool with a Y at the end of it. I used a piece of 1/16" alum plate to pry this tool against as I didn't want to dimple the headliner.

Toyota is using velcro around the perimeter of the sunroof opening to keep the headliner attached to the sunroof cassette.

Here's a pic of the headliner, harness and a mouse nest!

Well, I STILL have the sunroof rattle with the '04 sunroof cassette that I swapped in. Sounds like the TSB wasn't applied to this '04 4runner so I'll do what TSB is suggesting.

I'm very annoyed.

Moonroof rattle

Like most of you who struggled to get rid of the moonroof rattle. I have tried most of the suggestions incuding the TSB. But did not solve the problem. The only one that I did not do was to pull down the headliner and inspect for anything loose. That's just too much work.

I just like to share how I got rid of the rattling noise. I used a plastic melt glue stick and cut it 36mm length and put it between the aluminum rail and the moonroof metal frame (that holds the glass). Be aware that you must remove the glue stick if you want to open the moonroof.

Recent project I did: Replaced my headunit with ATOTO SA102 (with Carplay). I am very happy with it. I bought refurbished on ebay (ATOTO USA) and got what looked like brand new (complete with protective plastic on the screen) for less than $100. Carplay boots fast using my iPhone Xr. Works great with Google Map and Waze GPS. And, it you have SynologyNAS, it also have and interface for Synology DS Audio. The Head Unit sounds great too with BASS-MID-TREBLE control plus Graphic Equalizer (with 3 memory settings). If you have powered subwoofer, SA102 have pre-out and auto-on switch for external amp/subwoofer.

In 2021 this worked on my 2003!

I used leather strips that I had around the house instead of the vinyl grommet idea and itís working flawlessly. I almost went to the dealership to let them talk me into probably replacing the entire sunroof system. I am so happy I could cry.

Dude - you do good videos!! After watching your vid, I played with mine and have the same rattle. So it's the glass raise/lower linkage that is the issue. I came to this conclusion after I tilted the glass in the up/open position then had similar play but with more travel. So, the lift up/down mechanism is the issue from what I can tell.

My 2021 rattles. Just tapping around itís pretty obvious that according crap is the problem. Itís sad they never fixed that. Youíd think people would drive the cars they make and fix stupid stuff, but apparently not.

Even worse though is a popping sound between plastic pieces somewhere in front of the passenger. Any 5th gen owners had this and fixed it?

Hi All -

Read through this entire topic here and cannot thank you enough for the suggestions. I too had the loose glass on my 05 Limited. If I pushed up on it there was A LOT of play and it was rattling.

I did the three layer tape trick and it filled the gap just enough that the glass is no longer rattling. I used the black super sticky electrical tape. 3 layers. Its been over a month and its still in tack and working great. I honestly believe that my issue was from 'shrinking' weather stripping. Of note, the glass can still be pushed up when pressed on it with my hand so that aspect has not been fixed, but it is not noisy, even at highway speeds and through bumpy alleys. Never had any leaks so cannot speak to that.

The tape provides just enough "filler" to tighten up the seal. I have not tried to isolate the rods as some posters have done, bc I dont think its an issue for me. Thanks again for all the help.
