windscreen rattle

I have a 159. When I first picked it up there was a rattle at low revs. The dealer cured this by applying grease to the top of the windscreen seal. Now 9 months on it's come back. I don't want the inconvenience of taking it in to the dealer. Has anyone cured this problem themselves?

Re: windscreen rattle

Hi and welcome

I've moved your question into the 159 tech section, you could do another intro thread if you like

Re: windscreen rattle

Mine does it & it's a real pain. Silicone lube every few weeks helps but I have been advised that although removal / refit of the screen max fix it, it doesn't on all

Worked on mine - worth a try I would say.
