Sticking Sun Roof

SUBJECT: SVX STICKING SUN ROOF
The SVX sun roof weatherstrip should be lubricated with a silicone spray at PDI. This will prevent a sticking complaint when operating the sun roof of a new vehicle. The sticking is caused by a high sliding resistance between the new weatherstrip and the roof panel.
With use and age, the weatherstrip will conform to the roof panel and no future problems will be encountered.
A production change has been incorporated to modify the weatherstrip and to eliminate the necessity for PDI lubrication:
Starting Vin: N*106751
Starting Date: November 4, 1991
Sunroofs on all vehicles produced prior to this change should be lubricated at PDI. This will help ensure customer satisfaction by eliminating a potential complaint.
