    this has just started if I open the sunroof on tilt or more the creaking stops
    What’s the best way to fix this without taking to the dealer?

    Has the car had any body repairs. Late wife had creaks from a Pano roof for over a year and it transpired that cooking a minor paint repair in oven loosened the glue that holds in the roof!

    Applying dry lube on the runners and seals can help to get rid off creaks and squeaks.

    Definitely let them do it mate... just politely point them in the directing of that instruction and don’t let them start taking things apart haha

    This really ****** me off. The roof need a new frame; not grease. They did that to my roof and its creaking again. Worse than before.

    Cheap ******* Audi. IF they grease it it will happen again.

    Mine was in at the dealers recently for, among other things, a creaking sunroof. Only happened when it was closed. They did the grease which improved it a lot, but the creak was still there. When it went back for other work to be finished, they did it properly by dropping the roof lining and adjusting the mechanism. All is silent now :)

    LOL within 3 months it will be making a noise again. The fix with grease and anything else other than replacing it is a temp measure. It’s the dealer cheaping out.
