    Several months ago when I had the tires rotated, I had them look at the pano roof because it was juddering when opening. They lubed the cables and said it was important to catch it early so the cables didn't stretch.

    Now it's started squeaking when opening. The car is already scheduled to be serviced to replace a front bushing, so they'll look at it at the same time.

    Are other people seeing this problem? It seems like a pretty significant issue.

    I'm going in for my annual service next week and they will be looking at the pano roof yet again (3rd or 4th time). Each time they clean and lube and it gets better for a little while (on the order of weeks) but then always comes back.

    Ugh, that's exactly what I'm concerned about. Tesla says they'll do a more serious repair this time, so hopefully it will be fixed.

    Absolutely, I'll report what the service is, but it seems to take awhile to re-develop.
