X3 Moonroof

I have a 2004 X3 and I love this vehicle..but, apparently the little weather stripping in the front of the moonroof (as it slides closed) has started to common undone. Now you hear a bit of wind noise while you drive. I have heard that you can apply a clear rt silicone adhesive to reglue the rubber stripping. ..any other idea's besides taking it the dealer for big $$ ???

Regards,

Echo 7

My 04 does the exact same thing. Just noticed today that it leaks water like mad as well. I am hoping to come up with a fix that does not involve a 1.5 hour drive to the nearest dealer!

Mein Auto: 2004 X3 3.0i sport
Mine dislodged at the front right corner last winter when I bought my X3. I think it might had had some ice in there when I opened the sunroof on the test drive and it pulled it apart. I didn't notice it till after I bought it though.

I used auto trim adhesive and lots of patience to re-stick it. after cleaning the area, applied the adhesive, and then I used a roll of duct tape to press the seal into the corner (rounded edge) and it worked great for applying even pressure while the adhesive set!

What is the name of the silicone adhesive ? Did it stop the wind noise ?
