    My 2007 2.2 I-CDTI has a rattle from the sunroof blind (when in it's rearward position) that is driving 'er indoors up the wall. I have just read Dennismate's saga of his sunroof and wonder if there is a connection between a rattling blind and impending sunroof open/close failure. Anybody any clues on a cause or a cure?

    The chattering happens on my car too as for solution can't say as they is no catch on the sunroof blind whilst in the open position.

    As you can see there is no lip catcher on the sunroof frame like it does in the front. The only reason why I think Honda have not put a lip on the open position to make closure an easier option, so owners don't yank off the sunroof handle with excessive force.

    Thanks for that IA. There is certainly no hint of a latch in the blinds rearward position - I'll buy 'er some earplugs or turn the radio up!!
