I just bought a 2012 the other day and I've been driving it a bunch. Whenever I fold the front portion of the top back and then get up to about 40mph there is a warbeling whistle coming from somewhere above me but I can't actually pinpoint where it's coming from. It sounds like a little bird singing a song.
Is this a "normal" situation? Are there any well known items on the roof line that can make a whistle. Any fixes?
...dunno if there's any similarity, but I had to track down & secure a rear seat belt that did a floppy-wobble-buzzy sound at certain speeds with my front panels off and the windows open.
Did a zip tie for the longer rear straps to the rear 'sport bar' upright on both sides & cured it. YMMV
get in--buckle up--hang on
"soothing agricultural implement/personal servant/Walter Mitty multidimensional access utility device conveniently travels on pavement when necessary and often keeps me warm/cool/dry/soothed as needed."
I don't think it's my seat belts. I already fixed a flapping noise from the driver's side seat belt that happened when the top was flipped back and the windows down. I thought it might be the little tube you slide forward to enable the flip back function but I'm not sure.
I just hoped maybe this was something well known and there might be an easy fix. It's not killing me but the Jeep is so tight and rattle free that the whistle bothers me. It would be almost perfect if I could get the whistle to stop.
