Default Sunroof Noise

Is it common to hear a lot of wind noise while the sunroof is closed? Have had many vehicles with one and never heard this much noise. Luckily I haven't had any leaking issues like I have seen in other post.

I have not noticed any wind noise at all.

Can you tell if it is from the front or rear section?

Does it worsen if you lift very slightly with your hand while travelling?

Front section. Haven't tried lifting it while driving but I will.

It sounds like either the glass is not adjusted correctly, a seal is missing or damaged or the carriage mechanism is damaged or similar. Open it fully by holding the **** fully rotated to move the glass back as far as it goes then have a good look at the seal and check the glass is fixed properly to the runner mechanism.

Also it helps to put some silicone lube on a rag and rub it on the rubber seal.
