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 simple...no 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.
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!
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.
if you are wondering what the noise sounded like (I can use the past tense, now).
