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.
