The first time, both sounds seemed to go away but came back within 10-14 days. Second attempt did nothing for either. Third attempt (got the car back Friday) seems to have fixed the "creak" but the loose rattle noise is still very noticeable and I'm sure the creak will be back soon. This is very frustrating as it is not a cosmetic fix that you know can be fixed someday. Service is very nice and seems confident each time that they have some new "fix", but doesn't seem to be happening. I'm willing to try one more time, but started reading the language on the lemon laws as I don't sense this is fixable. VIN 13,XXX.

    Im wondering if this is an issue related to the 13xxx vin numbers as I have the same issue. Multiple attempts have failed.

    In your case the Oregon Lemon Law would kick in and you would get a full refund....of course you would have to hire an attorney. One demand letter and a few emails would do it.

    I have solved the creaking sound once and for all....about time. The fix is a no brainer and very simple to do. All you need is this:

    Apply the fuzzy part of the Velcro on the top part of this sunroof lip.

    The creaking and rubbing is coming when this lip goes under the bracket on the front frame.
    Just trace the Velcro with a razor and trim it to match the lip of the sunroof.
    So easy and more sound !!! Finally !!

    That's a better angle.
    Hope this ends all the creaking for everyone, it has worked for me and all my Tesla friends.

    grkviking, thanks for sharing the velcro pics. I installed this last week and I think it has helped a lot. I've stopped by my local service center a few times for the roof creaking, but it always seems to work its way back.

    I've had this creaking noise for several weeks now and it has been driving me nuts. Did a search here, came up with this thread, and saw this fix. like a charm! The creaking noise is gone now.

    Nearly 1 year after you posted this, I offer my thanks to you!

    I stand on the shoulders of giants. It was passed along to my and I am happy to pass along to others. I will add that I had a creak return some time later. After a few SC visits we determined the issue was actually a rattle in the interior cross bar that separates the front pano from the rear pano section. This is just a trim piece and if not correctly seated it can rattle. The SC was able to put some Velcro strips in there and that fixed things right up.

    I suspect that some pano creaks might be trim rattles from the ceiling cross pieces. Hope this helps others!

    The padding fix worked!
    Here mine.
    I have folded it on both sides,so it was very easy to install.
    I am still taking the car to service, since the noise increased through time, and I think something got loose, in my opinion it is not the sunroof, but something under where the sunroof connects.
