2000 E320 WAGON SUNROOF RATTLE

Anyone have suggestions for stopping my sunroof from rattling while closed on bumpy terrain?

Could be the mounting bolts have worked themselves loose. It could also be the motor mounting at the front of the system. Either way, you'll need to pull back to roof liner to see. Here are some pictures of a W210 sunroof sitting in a W124 roof. Ignore the W124 roof, just see how the W210 sunroof has numerous fasteners.

My Approach is not to remove the headliner.

It is hard to arm chair it from here. In the case of two of my cars, it had foreign matter that came in on my S-Class, and my 2002 E320 the spring arm broke that moves the wind turbulator up as the sunroof opened. I think that what broke one yours because on the W210's I find at the junk yard these are broken half the time. Here is a process how to remove the sunroof the W140 S-Class which is very similar on the W210.

Take a peek and see what you find. You could have a "Fall Squirrel" in there?

Best of luck,

when you say that the sun shade is closed, i'm picturing it covering the
sun roof, i.e. in forward position. is so, is the rattle coming from the shade
in the closed position?

or, is it coming from aft of the sun roof cover, ie towards the rear passenger
seating area?

i've experienced a lower frequency rattle (over bumps) when the sun roof
cover is retracted into the rearward position. my solution was to partially
lower the headliner at the rear half and to slide in several sheets of bubble
wrap.

you carefully pull down on the rear edge just above the rear doors. I
used a long thin piece of wood like a paint stirrer and push in the bubble
wrap.

it solved the rattle which had been annoying me for a year.
