Default Sunroof in Bonnie making odd noise

Sunroof seems to be making almost a gargaling sound at higher speeds. i have found out that it is aftermarket but has a lifetime warranty. It was installed when my grandfather purchased the car new, but did not come from the factory with it.

Anyone experience this before? Should I call up the company (pray that they are still in business) and see if they can look at it?

BTW, it has been raining a lot lately and this is when the noise developed...

Maybe it'* trying to drain? Check the drains would be my only suggestion.

it was typical for my 97 to get clogged drain holes...you have to blow them out with a high pressure hose. not sure if that'* your prob. though.

John, your sunroof looked to me like the OEM early '92 design. Not aftermarket. An aftermarket sunroof wouldn't necessarily have drains. That'* a roof-panel design thing.

I think if you had a spoiler, you wouldn't be hearing funny noises, as the airflow across your car would be as it was intended.
