Default sun roof not sealing properly

hey guys, i was hoping someone could give me some guidance on how to deal with my sun roof. I hear it is a common problem with our cars that it starts to droop a bit in the back and doesn't come all the way up and seal properly. Mine leaks just a bit if i wash my car and when i am driving, I get a ton of wind noise coming in through it. What can I do about it? Thanks in advance

so long story short, close the roof and loosen the four adjustment screws. Push it up til its flush and then tighten the screws? I don't have an inch pound torque wrench either. Would hand tight safice or would it be too much?

I've never bothered with a torque wrench on it either. Hand tight - enough to hold things in place, but not strip things out should be fine. It will probably take a few times adjusting things until you get it "just right".

I just bought the car about two weeks ago and mine already did this. I followed what Archon posted and all is good It'* really is that simple. All it was with mine was the two rear screws came loose. I didn't have anything to know how tight to make it so I just tightened it as much as I could. I'll just keep an eye on it. No biggie at all
Thanks Archon

Glad to help out, guys. Mine had that problem, too. I have to admit that it took me 3 tries before I got it how I wanted it.

All GM sunroofs are adjustable.

This has been a Techinfo article for about 4 years:

Yes Bill I have read that before but this new illustrated explanation is much better.

Can you include it in Techinfo
