I have developed a rattle in my top. No comments please! It rattles around the latch area on the drivers side. Is there a way to adjust the latching mechanism to stop the rattling? It used to be fine and the passenger side does not rattle.

I have also developed a rattle in the same place on my 69 vert after this summer. Not sure if it will go away when the warm weather comes back, but I'm curious also if there's a way to make an adjustment to eliminate it.

The top is less than a year old so I'll look at the hook. Thanks

Could be some broken clips for the windshield surround stainless trim? I've had retaining clips break-off and the wind will cause the trim to start rattling around 40mph. I swore it was from the top until I stuck my hand over and held it down and then the rattle went away.

i have a similar rattle, although it almost sounds like a clicking noise. I think its the same thing you guys are talking about.
I have not yet tried to figure it out, but thought it might be because my weatherstrip on the top is hard and brittle. I figure replacing this would maybe solve it.....
I guess i can look at adjusting the hooks also....

It is definetly not the windshield trim. The weather turned cold so I can't check the hook right now. Will let you know when it warms up a little.
