Now that it is cooler, my top sounds as though it is frying bacon when I get up to and above 45 mph??? It sounds like it coming from the passenger side... I have looked on top and underneath and I can't figure it out. If I push up on it, the popping and cracking sounds stop.
Anyone else had this issue? What did you do to stop it??
I recognize my soft top is going to make some noise... jeeps do that, but this is a different sound.
Soft top frying bacon - I thought at first this would be some neat trick involving really hot weather and a black top left in the parking lot too long.
Try to locate the sound - get a kid with good ears to sit in the back maybe? It's most likely a strap that's humming or a wind turbulence noise. If you cna pinpoint it, you can probably do something to remove it. Another way to pinpoint sounds: try temporary "fixes" to see if it has an impact. Shove a rag in between the bar and top. Open a window, etc.
Sometimes the velcro that wraps around the horizontal pole just behind your head gets a little loose. that'll make a frying bacon sound. Just un-velcro it and re-velcro it a little tighter. that fixed it for me.
