The mouse in the attic / headliner of our K900
 
I posted the below quote in the Facebook group which seems WAY MORE active than this forum but wanted to tell you forum guys as well:
"Guys, tomorrow do you all mind driving your K900 without the speakers on?
I am noticing what can be best described as a "mouse in the attic" type of noise coming from above my sunroof button and I am beginning to think it's the same part that busted on Dan & Kevin's K900's they own. Dan / Kevin... Did you two EVER hear a weird noise like I am hearing?
I DO NOT hear it all the time. It's only over certain bumps in the road do I hear the "mouse in the attic".
Secondly, Kevin Kenny, I understand yours has been replaced. Do you hear anything now? Keep in mind I have to have the sound off in my car in order to hear the faint noise."

So far, on the facebook group, two guys have had their body panel before the sunroof but behind the windshield shatter. There are photos of this on facebook group K900.

Anyone else here on the forums have this issue? I am suspecting that the noise I hear about 5% of the time (rare-mind you) is that panel above to give way like the other two guys in our group had theirs shatter. So far, it's a 2015 thing. No 2016 owners have heard this noise or had theirs shatter.

That glass panel above the windshield exists on most cars with a pano roof. They do shatter occasionally, but every one I've heard tell about was caused by the impact of a rock or other road debris. I've never heard of one shattering due to some sort of defect. FWIW, I usually drive around with nothing playing on the infotainment, just enjoying the quietude of the K900 :) I have not heard any noises from that region.

Negative. Please do not confuse what's in the OP as me talking about the glass roof/sunroof. That is fine. The problem, as mentioned in the OP, is the plastic panel BEFORE the sunroof/glass roof but after the windshield.

That piece there is the culprit :)

The only noise I ever get from that area, is when my wife leaves her sun glasses in the overhead.
Of course she looks all over the house for them

Valid point and idea. However, I checked and my sunglass holder is indeed empty.
But good idea, that if anyone hears anything from that area to remove your glasses and drive around again.

Mine LEAKS. and it apparently has been doing it for some time and has recently caused me some issues before I self addressed them with the factory manual and a few tools. My entire under dash and a pillar has rust damage. This section of glass has serious issues!
