Sunroof wind noise

e320 1995.

Car is dead quiet at 65mph...at about 70 it seems like the sunroof "unseals" and there is some wind noise.

no leaks

i can tilt the sunroof up and then down... noise is gone... if I am going slower than 70//

i can't find any missing seals?

thoughts?

Check the front shoes. If the plastic slides are worn on the top sides, the panel could be lifting just a bit. As you build up speed, pressure inside the car increases and the pressure above the roof decreases, tending to raise the panel. Also check the connections of the lifting mechanism.
