S60 Sunroof Rattle Fixes

Hearing a Sunroof Rattle?

Volvo S60 Rattling Sunroof Fixes

Sunroof on my 02 volvo s60 2.4t rattles when i hit bumps. I checked the screws that mount it to the track and they are nice and tight. It only seems to have the slightest movement when its closed, when I open it and try to move it around a little its very tight – i get no movement.

Anyone know what I can do to fix this?

Bonus! More About The Volvo S60

The Volvo S60 is a compact luxury sedan manufactured and marketed by Volvo since 2000 and is now in its third generation.

The first generation (2000–2009) was launched in autumn of 2000 in order to replace the S70 and was based on the P2 platform. It had a similar designed estate version called Volvo V70 and a sports version called S60 R. Styling cues were taken from the ECC concept car and the S80.

The second generation (2010–2018) was released in 2010 for the 2011 model year and has its own estate version, known as the Volvo V60. The third generation joined the Volvo line-up in 2018 for the 2019 model year. It is built on a shortened version of the Scalable Product Architecture platform, in America’s first Volvo factory in Ridgeville, South Carolina. The U.S. became the sole global source of the S60 sedan after production in China was phased out in early 2019.

My crossbars have also fallen off. Did you ever find a solution? I can’t find any pictures that would show me how to glue them back on.

Guy Willingham says:

I have a 01 v70 wagon. The metal strips at the front and rear of the sunroof are both completely off. The front one seems to be where wind deflector should be. The roof seems to work fine without them but there is a little wind noise but no water leaks. Are these pieces really needed? Any advice is appreciated.

My ’01 S60 has this issue. Found both crossbars un-glued from the glass. The motor seems to no longer be calibrated to the mechanism Home position. Heard a popping noise once and believe it jumped a tooth on belt or gear. Have to now jog it manually to get it roughly approximated to proper closed position. Inner panel does not completely close either, 1/2″ gap. Anyone know how to re-synch the electro and mechanical components? And what should I look for underlying cause?

THANK YOU for your simple tip saving my tons of money most likely. Our local Volvo dealer are scam artists. I just went out and fixed my squeaky sunroof in less than 5 minutes thanks to your tip. I took it around the block and it was quiet as can be.


I have a 2000 S80 that JUST STARTED to rattle at the sunroof. I will try the torx screws.

Picked up complete Sunroof for my S60 @ LKQ fo $200 & they ship if you need it.

I have the same problem on my 2000 S80. Same thing, Volvo wants to replace the tracks…no way, to costly!!!! This is a poor design if its common. I said what else can eb done…they tightened something…must be what is described above.

Please let me know if it worked Titus?

Had the same problem.
Put the sunroof in “moon” position (back end raised).
Looking from inside the car to the sides of the sunroof, you see a rubber gaiter. Cautiously remove it from the upper fixing towards the sunroof itself.
Behind it there is one screw (the usual Torx) on each side.
Mine were loose, tightening them fixed the issue!
Check alignment of closed sunroof with car roof before fixing the rubber gaiter again.

Well I have the same problem I was told by volvo that the glider tracks are worn out and need to be replaced. Sounds simple and easy however the cost is horrific.. $1630 let me know if you find a used parts guy that ships. I found a track in CT on ebay for 250 but the guy wont ship
