Hello!
I have an SEL-4Motion that’s barely 3k miles old. It’s been having a rattle in the sunroof somewhere, in fact if I reach up on the corner of the sunroof and poke around around the black metal frame and push a little around I can recreate all kinds of the clicking noises. The tapping/clicking noise is MUCH more prevalent with warmer temperatures but still is there when it’s cold. Secondly when it’s cold, like it is in the mountain west right now, when you warm up your car enough driving down the road you hear a loud POP, as loud as a rock hitting your windshield. Mind you this happens every time you drive the car and it’s cold (under 40°F outside).

VW keeps wanting to “inspect the sunroof” but won’t definitively replace or repair the sunroof. It just seems to be going in circles and I don’t know what I should do. Does anyone else have this issue? It’s literally driving me crazy hearing the rattle every time you drive somewhere with any bump in the road.

I couldn't figure out where this loud POP was coming from. Its the same instance for me also. Frigid Chicago temps and after driving and the car is warm I hear the Pop. Thought it was coming from the windshield but very much could be the sunroof. I will pay closer attention next time to see. But its so loud its scary.

I also have this happening in Chicago but the worst part is, I opted for NO sunroof to avoid the problem, and yet here I am sitting in the same boat as you. :( Mine sounds like it's coming from the left side of the windshield. Scares the heck out of me every time it happens. My Taos only has 500 miles so far but it's been happening since day 1.

So I listened to try to hear better where the sound was coming from and as I initially thought its the right side of the windshield. I have 2000 miles and only just stated when the cold weather hit.
