Default 00 3.2 TL Moonroof Creaking

Greetings To The List,

Have a 00 3.2 TL w/moonroof that has started 'creaking'. I saw that there
was a TSB out on this (00-023), but haven't been able to see the actual
TSB.

I've seen some discussion in other groups that the dealer used teflon tape
(as directed by Acura/Honda) to counteract this.

I'm guessing that I should clean the edge of the actual roof and apply the
tape, correct? Anyone? Bueller?

I appreciate any guidance you can send my way regarding this. The creak is
starting to irritate me.

Much Respect,

Genghis

At the last service visit to the dealer, I complained about the exact same
issue. They resolved it by installing the tape, though I don't know what
material it is made of.. They will do it at no cost.

Fusion Guy,

Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, I'm the second owner, so I don't
think a "no charge" service visit is in my future.

I appreciate your taking the time to reply.

Much Respect,

Genghis

If the car is still in the 4 year, 50,000 mile warranty, they should at
least look at it for free, but don't hold your breath.

My '00 TL started making sunroof noises & it turned out that the track it
slides on was dry on one side - apparently from the time it was built. I
took it to the dealer and they actually said they didn't have time to look
at it (so much for Acura's warranty service...). I greased the track on the
dry side and all the noises went away.
