Hardtop wind noise


29 Jun 2013
When I go over 65mph the wind noise on my hardtop is pretty loud and is coming from the top to windscreen area. I have the little plastic caps on properly but no matter what I do they don't seat properly into the locating slots either side of the windscreen, They are about 10mm short of where they should be and the front latch doesn't pull them into the slots. When the auto latch on the soft top closes it pulls the top in tight but the manual hardtop latch doesn't. Can anything be adjusted?
Are you talking about the orange plastic caps used for storing the hood during the summer months? Perhaps you could post a pic of the questionable parts.
Have you tried cranking the 2 adjuster bolts on the rear locators. Raising the rear will bring the front closer to the windscreen
The plastic caps go over the front locating pins, yes I have tried that but it just goes the same once they are tightened.
Can some one tell me about these caps as I have a hard top and have never heard of them before!
I did have a small influx of water on the passenger side where the top of the window meets the hard top when it rained, would these "caps" help?
So today I decided to remove the hardtop as im going to do some coilover work and need access to the top mounts. As I put the soft top up I heard a crack and the rear plastic screen shattered, It was very brittle. Anyone know if you can just replace the plastic? On a better note I managed to get the pins on the hardtop to seat properly. As stated by liz111s the two nuts on the rear pins can be slackened and the pins are in slotted holes, A shove forward and they are now seated at the front. Now to search for a new screen :sad:
