I also purchased an "09" Liberty with a "skyslider" roof. Noise is not the right word for it. I'm assuming that Chrysler/Jeep didn't learn nor try to fix the problem for the 2009 model year. Noted to my dealer that there is a Blt. from Chrysler Jeep concerning this problem but his response was "it was or the 2008 model therefor not applicable to the 2009 model". DUH. I guess I too need to contact whomever about the "Lemon Law". Dealer Service Rep did say he had the same problem but to date has not found a solution for it other than a fixed air dam in front of the opening (none sold by JEEP fit this situation) nor offered on the open market. And you wonder why the BIG THREE are having a hard time selling their products...

So, are you able to go back and get the header kit replaced again? There does not seem to be any other solutions out there that I have heard of. Let me know if you find anything out about the Lemon Law with this situation because it is definately frustrating for sure.
#46 of 198 what gets fixed?
Feb 28, 2009 (5:57 pm)
No trouble on my 09 Liberty yet but this thread is very troubling. I worry every time I open the roof at 60 MPH. OK- I won't do that. What else might contribute to the seal failure? Is there a preventive maintenance procedure that would help avoid the problem (like getting the seal surfaces periodically greased)?
Has anyone seen a physical part that gets replaced when a leaky roof is "fixed"? What is it and where does it go? Get a picture of it and post it here if you can. Can someone get their service manager to describe the procedure that is used to fix the roof and share it here?

I just got my Jeep Liberty back after they installed the header kit and it is 100% better than before. I can go 70 Miles per hour + with no wind noise at all. Like a new car. I will scan and attach the service order later but it is called a header kit.
#48 of 198 Initiated Lemon Law on my 08 Liberty in Florida

I have been dealing with the noise issue for the past few months, had the car at the dealer 4 times with no success and was told on my last visit that they could not replicate the issue. I believe the tech must have driven around the parking lot and decided he did not hear anything, which at that speed he would not have. I sent my Motor Vehicle Defect Notification to Chrysler and they directed me to bring the car back to the dealer and they will attempt to fix it AGAIN. The car is in the shop as we speak, and according to the Florida Lemon Law, if they don't get it right they are required to give me a replacement vehicle or refund my money, my choice. I will keep this forum posted.

To the best of my knowledge they only did what was required in the TSB, which was NOT replacing the header kit. The Chrysler rep apparently took the car for a test drive and decided that the roof is functioning as the manufacturer intended. I am not happy with that response, nor the fact that they had me drop off my car for 3 days and they seemingly had no intention of attempting another repair. I am in the process of filing a request for arbitration with the Florida Office of the Attorney General. IF they accept my request then I figure I have a 50/50 chance of getting a ruling in my favor. I have nothing to lose but some postage and a little more time but I feel it is worth the possible outcome, which for me would be a refund.

That is crazy. The header kit was only like 150 dollars and they had it done in 1 day and it comletely took car of the wind noise. Good luck and let me know your outcome in case I have to deal with this in the future.

Is the header kit a Chrysler part? If so what is the part number? I would assume that Chrysler would try everything at its disposal, but then again they are not in a good place financially.
