    Hi all,

    Ive got 2 trim issues I'm working on. This one much more minor. I noticed that while driving today, noticed a lot more little plastic popping, going down the road, on even bumps so small to be imperceptible. It's not so much the sunroof as it seems to be from the doors? It's hot here where I live (96f with direct sun) so my thoughts are it's just related to the heating and cooling of the plastic trim joints throughout the car, giving in the heat and shrinking with AC. Does anyone live in a similar climate experience this, and does it work itself out, or is it still present in cooler weather?

    trying cleaning all the rubber door and sunroof gaskets and then apply Shinetsu grease , it may solve the majority of the sounds ................... grease.jpg you can buy it at Honda dealers , sounds crazy but this is the best auto gasket grease you can buy .................good luck ( I had such bad sqeeking and ticking sounds that I had to get my complete sunroof frame replaced , the car has been perfect ever since ! )
