Noisy hardtop clips

Any advice on how to silence the front clips from ratteling?
I do mostly highway and city driving.

Something is wrong with the way your top fits. They should be tight.

Never had that problem - probably 'cause I run with a soft top year round. But can you tell me how to keep my windows quieter?

Well, just like us, as we age things start working loose. I even put another layer of weatherstripping up to give it more to squish down and be tight.

Hmm, so that's why the previous owner of my jeep put thick peices of cardboard. The noise drove the heck out of me for a good while after I first unhooked those latches and threw those cardboard peices away.
