Service Procedure

1. Pinpoint the location of the roof noise by test driving the vehicle on rough roads or by duplicating the customer’s driving habits.

2. Proceed to the appropriate procedure based on how the vehicle is equipped.

(1). If the vehicle is equipped with a soft top roof, complete Procedure A.

(2). If the vehicle is equipped with a hard top roof, complete Procedure B.

 

Procedure A: Diagnose Squeaks And/Or Rattles Coming From The Soft Top Roof

1. Inspect the front and middle soft top latches to make sure they are properly secured to the body. Inspect the quarter and rear windows to make sure they are properly secured. Refer to the Digital Owner’s Manual > Removable Vehicle Components > Removable Soft Top.

2. Did resecuring the soft top assemblies to the vehicle resolve the noise?

(1). Yes – repair is complete. Advise customer on proper soft top operating procedure by having them refer to the Digital Owner’s Manual > Removable Vehicle Components > Removable Soft Top.

(2). No – proceed to Step 3.

3. Apply Krytox® grease to the latch hooks and locator pins on both front latches. Refer to Figure 1 for locator pin identification.

Figure 1

 

4. Did applying Krytox® grease to the latch hooks and locator pins resolve the noise?

(1). Yes – replace the affected latch assembly. Repair is complete.

(2). No – proceed to Step 5.

5. Apply Krytox® grease to the header seal where it contacts the soft top roof assembly.

6. Did applying Krytox® grease to the header seal resolve the noise?

(1). Yes – repair is complete.

(2). No – this article does not apply. Refer to Workshop Manual (WSM), Section 501-18A.

 

Procedure B: Diagnose Squeaks And/Or Rattles Coming From The Hard Top Roof

1. Inspect the front and middle (if equipped) roof sections to make sure they are properly secured to the vehicle. Refer to the Digital Owner’s Manual > Removable Vehicle Components > Removable Hard Top.

2. Did resecuring the hard top assemblies to the vehicle resolve the noise?

(1). Yes – repair is complete. Advise customer on proper hard top operating procedures by having them refer to the Digital Owner’s Manual > Removable Vehicle Components > Removable Hard Top.

(2). No – proceed to Step 3.

3. Identify all suspect latch hooks and locator pins and apply Krytox® grease to each one, one at a time, to isolate the source of the noise. Refer to Figure 2 for locator pin identification on 5-door vehicles. Refer to Figure 3 for locator pin identification on 3-door vehicles. (Figures 2-3)
