#7 of 12 Roof still squeaking
Jul 06, 2012 (5:33 am)
I've had my 2012 LTD back to the dealer 4 times for the squeaking roof. They've tried the foam and rubber and haven't solved it yet. Any new developments?

I guess this could be considered a development...just one that won't help you out. For 2013 Hyundai abandoned that type of sunroof and reverted to the traditional metal sunroof on the Sonata. Whom ever it was that said that GM gave up on these due to all the trouble they seem to be was probably right since Hyundai appears to have done the same.

My dealership was able to fix the squeak. Have your dealership call the Alexandria Hyundai Dealership in Alexandria Virginia. I'm not exactly sure what they did, but it seemed to work. The Service Manager should be able to help.
#10 of 12 2011 Sonata Limited - Sun Roof Squeaking

My 2011 Sonata has the same issues as everyone previously posted. My roof only squeaks in the summer when it is very hot and stops if we have rain. Has anyone else seen these similarities as well? The dealership is unable to repair it. We should have some recourse after so many attempts and no solution.
I will pass on to them the information on the dealership in Alexandria, Virginia and just keep my fingers crossed.

Unfortunately I think it's a design defect and there's nothing they can do. I've had the headliner all torn out and a cross bar replaced, rubber pads replaced, screws tightened, etc and it still squeaks every once in a while. I've also had issues with the navigation system, rear view camera and turbo engine. It's my first Hyundai and will probably be my last.
#12 of 12 New TSB 13-BD-2 Released For This Issue

DESCRIPTION: On some 2012~2013 Sonata (YF) and 2012 Sonata Hybrid (YF-HEV) vehicles with panoramic sunroof, a slight creaking or rattle noise in the roof may be heard. If the source of the noise is around the roof area on top of the B-pillar, follow the procedure outlined in this bulletin to eliminate the noise.
This basically uses "acoustic felt" and Loctite to secure the sunroof cross-members to stop the creaking.
