    I would like to do the necessary maintenance on my sunroof before
    anything breaks.

    Does anyone know exactly what is involved? I checked in Haynes (240)
    and Chilton, but unfortunately, sunroofs do not exist...

    In the owner's manual, they say to use white grease, but once at the
    dealer, the guy used WD40...

    What should I use and exactly where should I apply it?

    Thanks.

    The sunroof can be a real pain. WD-40 is good for cleaning off old dried up
    grease but that's about it. Use white grease or wheel bearing grease, I've
    had good luck with both. Use it on the toothed cables.

    You need to look in Chilton C72302 which should certainly have it in. The
    sunroof in your car is glass tilt/n/slide. just open it up and access the tracks
    and cables, use a good quality HMP (High Melting Point) grease and lightly smear
    moving parts. Clean the seal around the sunroof carefully to remove caked dirt
    etc.

    Cheers, Peter.
