    FYI for everyone-My roof was chattering and sticking when opening/closing. Apparently the motors on each side were out sync. Didn't see this anywhere on a search so I thought I would post it in case anyone else was having this problem.

    Thanks for the update, this happened to me once, but I haven't noticed it again

    My pano roof tracks were cleaned out by my service dept. and that worked.

    I had a similar issue, although the stuttering was only on one side. Was severe enough that the roof did not close all the way on 3 occasions, although I was able to get it closed by partially re-opening and then closing it.

    Service looked at it and did some minor adjustments, but decided to order new rails and replaced them a couple weeks ago after the parts came in.... Its very good now...

    I had that issue too where it would stick on the right side. They lubed and cleaned the track and the problem is now gone.
