Squeaky Hood ?

I have a 3.2 JTS Spider with a squeaky hood, mouse-like rubber on rubber I think? Particularly when going over bumps/potholes. The hood mechanicals have all been lubed recently and it persists. It does encourage hood down driving, but any tips on find the source and treating it?

Re: Squeaky Hood ?

my spider squeaks with the roof up, sometimes from the roof, sometimes from the dash ... put it down to the fact that's it's a convertible and it has body flex

Likewise. Many squeaks and rattles, it's a convertible, so not totally surprised and it doesn't really bother me too much. In fact, hood-up refinement is generally pretty good (very little engine/road/wind noise) so the odd squeak is no biggie to me.

Re: Squeaky Hood ?

I get the odd squeak or rattle from the roof but nothing that causes great concern, its a convertible and expected such issues from teh start.
