4 door soft top window problems

I own a 2008 Unlimited Sahara with dual tops. Can anyone suggest a fix for the problem of the rear quarter panel windows pulling free from the back doors at highways speeds? The leading edge of the soft quarter panel window that meets the rear door window frame will not stay put at highway speeds.

You're not tucking it completely into the channel. When it is completeyl tucked it will not come out. Get the zipper started, no more than an inch. Tuck the edge full into the channel, Tuck the lower plastic edge under the ridge along the tub. Pull the zipper all thway around. Smooth the edge along the channel to make sure the top portion is all the way in. Close the velcro.

You have to make sure its tucked in properly...the bottom seems to seat itself in best..so start at the bottom and work your way up...You may have to give the top a little tug..but once its in....just keep working it up.

Best way to describe it is that the inner edge actually pushes back towards the rear of the JK.

You have to tuck the edge in between the metal frame of the vehicle and the plastic frame that the panel lays across - the hard plastic leading edge on the window will not be visible when tucked properly.

Hi
I have a feeling I might be ticking it in in the wrong place. Can somebody post a pick of what it should look like ticked in?
I also have huge rattles coming from the back of the soft top. I dont mind so much but the Mrs (who uses as daily drive) She minds it plenty as well as the slight wind noize coming from the front. Any sugestions?

Thanks

There is a channel in the plastic piece that surrounds the door. It tucks into that channel BEFORE you zip it in. Read my post above.
