headliner rattle

i have noticed i am getting a rattle like a loose screw or something in the back of the roof headliner area just before the rear headliner light.

the car is a coupe and has a sunroof.
IF i open the sunroof the rattle is not there but the minute i close it i hear it on every little bump.

i don't think i can get to this area at all as the sunroof goes into a sandwich when opened ( i might be wrong).

has anyone experience the same thing and is there a fix?

I've had two newer vehicles that had recalls on the headliner rattle and different screws had to be fitted.

Thank you.

I think ultimately you will need to remove your sliding roof and go exploring for the rattle. Have fun!

I need to fix the sliding roof on my W126 this summer. There are plenty of write-ups. Mine barely moves, I am hoping it just needs greased, and not some broken parts....
