I also have a 2015. Se, 2 door. I have
No issues. I wonder how many with 2 doors don't. Seems 2 less doors would mean a much stiffer body. Less flex, less noise.

The source of the rubbing sound is this channel that the sunroof glass rests in. The channel is a fairly flexible piece of plastic. On the underside of the sunroof, is a ridge that lays in this groove when the roof is shut. The ridge has a rubberized coating on it.
Thanks for the detailed pictures! Did this last night and it worked great.

Purchased adhesive backed felt sheet. $5, Amazon Prime.

Slide back the roof so its open by aproximately 3-4 inches. This will raise the glass about an inch and give you more clearance to place the felt on the plastic piece from inside the car, by reaching in between the glass and the mesh sun shade.

I cut a patch of the felt about the size of a business card. Reaching through the driver or passenger window, i stuck my hand between the glass and the mesh sun shield frame and stuck the adhesive backed felt to the black plastic piece.

The first two pictures below show from inside the car, looking back. The last picture is from the side with how i placed the felt. I put a piece on the passenger and driver side of the black plastic piece.

Thanks to both of you.

Finally got around to this. Used some extreme outdoor fuzzy Velcro as it was thicker than any felt i found. Car is nice and quiet now.

Hopefully the Velcro stays put and the glue doesnít melt off during the summer.

Sunroof just started squeaking. Going to give this a go. Thank you.
