This past month I haven't been able to take off my soft top because it has been raining so much, but I finally took the top today in desperation that the noise might stop or that I could figure out what was causing it. However, I could not pinpoint the problem or find a solution. I figured I would ask the the Jeep community before I took it in to get looked at to make sure it isn't too serious. Has anyone had a problem similar to this? Is there a solution or any suggestions about where to look? Any help would be much appreciated, I will try to post a link to a video when I get the chance.
May or may not be the same squeak, but both of my door surrounds "squeak" right where the pin goes into the tub right behind the door...even with the rubber gasket thing (I saw it had a "real" name that someone mentioned in another thread) between the body and the surround it still squeaks. If I take the Door Surrounds off (mine does it on both sides), noise goes away. If I apply some pressure on the surround with my hand (hard to do while driving
) the sound goes away. I shoved a small piece of cardboard under the inside edge of the door surround (to apply some pressure) and it was better until it fell out. I probably just need to add another rubber washer around the door surround pin or something that will apply a bit of pressure to keep it quiet.
Might not be the same sound, but at least something to double check!
