2012 Jaguar XF Supercharged: Creaky Sunroof
January 9, 2013
When backing our long-term 2012 Jaguar XF Supercharged at an angle into my driveway this weekend, I heard a sound that's familiar to convertible owners: That twisting, creaking sound where the top meets the header of the windshield. But our Jag is a sedan and the noise comes from the sunroof.
Once noticed, I began hearing it on every driveway taken at an angle. I searched the internet and while there isn't a related recall or even technical service bulletin, I did find that this is a familiar trait to the XF and owner forums are filled with this same observation. Is the chassis really so flexible, or does the sunroof gasket simply need a little silicone? The consensus seems to fall to the latter.
