ok i know i may be asking multiple questions. lol

recently i was on the continent driving faster than our normal driving on the island here, (our max speed limit is 80km/hr) lol

On going above 120km/hr noise from the sunroof started to increase, and going above 160km/hr and for a long period the sound will be annoying.

To all those sportage owners who has the sunroof option, is this a common issue? i asked the local dealer about it and they found nothing uncommon. during this trip i encountered some heavy rain also and if there was leak i would have noticed some water going in but there was none.

Any comments?

thanks

Sunroof open is going to make noise, but closed it's not bad. I have a roof rack with bicycle trays and that makes some noise but even then isn't bad with the sunroof closed. Can't hear it at all when the shade is also closed.

i am refering to driving with suroof closed. it is a bit noisy. dont know if it was due to cross winds as on other occasions with cover closed also i did not notice it.

With thanks to Elmerblues from Kiaclub Nederland

Remove the front protection cap from the roofrail start pulling at the front, carfull its plastic.
If you got smaller tools you can leave them on



The two metal fastners should come out but they often don't



The inside of the cap



Open your roof and close it till here.

Close up pic



Use this bit



TIP: Mark the position of the Bolts before you start

TIP: Adjust one side then the other side.


These tools are big if you have smaller you dan't have to remove the cover but like so you see more.
