Help Squeaky Spider

Now the weather has got much wetter I'm spending more and more time in the Spider with the hood up and the slightly annoying squeak from behind my right ear is becoming ever more intrusive.
I don't really want to take it back to the dealers just for a squeak and no other problems have cropped up so has anyone else had the same problem??? if its a case of something that needs a little silicone spray or a small sticky foam pad attaching on it then IL do it myself but after numerous tries i cant find where its coming from I'm starting to become obsessed does anyone have any ideas where its coming from???
like i said it seems to be coming from behind my right ear while driving with the hood up Ive removed the wind stop and lubed the door rubbers but still no joy HELP PLEASE

They laugh at us because we are different ,we pity them because they are all the same

Re: Squeaky Spider

I have something similar.

It was the seat rubbing against the pillar where the seatbelt comes from.

Either move the seat forward or rack the back up a bit and see if it solves it.

Re: Squeaky Spider

Mine squeaks. I find if you hold the drivers window button UP it reseals and stops the squeak and improves wind noise.

Re: Squeaky Spider

I have to agree with Euroboy - it really annoyed me on my earlier car and moving the seat forward stopped the problem.
