Default How to quiet sunroof seals

Hi all,

I've got an 01 Accord and the rubber seal around the sunroof makes a
crunching/squeaking kind of sound over bumps when it's closed. I tried
wiping it clean with a damp rag but that just made it worse -- the dirt must
have been easing the friction between the paint and the rubber.

Any suggestions what might help here? I'm thinking maybe some wax on inside
lip of the sunroof hole (where the roof metal makes a 90 deg. turn
downwards) might help? Failing that, maybe a thin film of lithium grease,
although I'm not sure if that would be good for the paint. I've noticed
that when I open the roof in vent mode, it actually lifts the metal behind
it as it moves due to the friction between the roof and the paint.. maybe
the rubber has swollen and it's fitting too tightly?

Have dealer perform steps outlined in TSB 00-095. This is a known problem.

The dealer will correct the problem per the TSB, but it is only a temporary
fix. Pick up some Shin-Etsu Grease. It is what Honda uses. It is a silicone
based grease. I have my own tube and I clean the sunroof seals and apply it
once or twice a year. Works great.

I was actually asking in reference to squeaking seals (roof and trunk) on
a Supra, but Thanks! for the tip!!

(I actually no longer own a Honda, haven't since 1993, but since Tegger
and a few other "notables" hang out here...

The more brains you can pick the better! See, I got a decent tip from you!
Thanks!
