    creaking top

    Our top recently began to creak. It does not rattle and is still vault like in that it does not leak and works flawlessly. I took it into the dealer and they said there was a bulletin on this issue that told them to apply a silicone salve along the weatherstriping. Good news is it took care of some of the creaking. Bad news is now others have appeared. This is nothing more than parts rubbing and making noise as the chassis twists and moves. Annoying though and I am wondering if anyone has a magic solution. Anyone?

    Mine does it too, where the top contacts the windshield header. Sounds like it's in the area around the sun visors. I use Kytox instead of silicone and it seems to stop it for awhile.

    Turns out on mine it was the locator pins on either side of the top. These pins engage the windshield header. A little silicone on each pin and the noise is gone.
