Are the plastic end covers intact over the lugs that slot into the top of the A-pillar?

Seen in this photo:

(not where the green arrows are pointing but the actual centre piece)

Lets just say its a noise i know well and im 95% certain i'm correct in what it is .. i never say 100% on anything .

About 1 foot back from the front edge of the roof is a pivot .. an arm locates onto the front section .. this pivot makes this noise .. 986 is the same.

It's about 1.5 - 2 hrs labor for a garage to repair.

You basically have to fold the canvas back to gain access so its front bar and seal removed .. side rubber seal dropped .. small screws with difficult access to get at .. unstick the canvas at the front ( double sided tape ) peel the canvas back and you will see the pivot .

Square locking clip .. remove that .. push out the pivot then grease and reassemble .

I have to admit .. its a rather annoying noise .

I knew where you meant, but noises can appear in places caused by other areas not being right.
