    I recently took the MS in because the sunroof was "stuttering" a bit towards the end of travel while opening. I asked the tech what they used to lubricate the tracks so I could DIY in the future. He showed me a container of Klubersynth RA 44-702.

    I tried searching on this hoping to find it for sale on-line, but I didn't come up with anywhere to buy it. Anyone know of a source or a good alternative?

    Back from the dead on this one also. Has anyone found a source for this stuff in the US, or a spec'd alternative?

    I just used silicone lubricant in a spray can from Lowes. Works great. You have to reapply every few months.
