Default Sunroof Adjustable?

Hi, need your suggestions.... the sunroof on my S80 rattles on bumpy roads. I can re-create the same noise if I push (tap) the sunroof glass from inside. My guess is that the sunroof mechanism isn't holding the glass tight enough in the close position. Is it possible to adjust the sunroof by myself?

When the sunroof is in close position, there is no water leak. I've tested in rainy days and carwash.

Many thanks in advance!!

Either one of 2 things is happening.
1. The screws securing the sunroof came loose. Yes you can tighten them your self. There is a black cover like an Accoridian that is in there. Carefully grab the top by the glass. Pull it towards the inside of the car. it should unclip from the glass. Then you should see the screws.

2. The rear support on the glas comes unglued sometimes and flops around upthere.

My sunroof moves a little also. When you get off the highway, I will hear it lower. Are they designed to have some play in them? Mine moves with the change of air pressure in the car.

Also inspect the Metal brackets in the front and rear of the glass.

Haven't really found anything that holds it on for to long.
I am in Florida. Like 100 degrees every day. The heat kills the glues.
