New Jeep, Minor issues (annoying)

Just got my new JKU Sport S home yesterday and I love it!! Except a few little things. I wonder if anyone experienced these?

There is A significant deal of wind noise coming from the passenger side. I have a hard top and checked all the door seals and they seem to be good. However, I looked at the corner of the windshield behind the speaker on top of the dash and it looks like the seal is bunched up and not all the way to the edge? It's annoying. Anyone had this happen?

Also, on the same side near the dash there seems to be something lose. When I go over any bumps or rough sections of road it is clicking around the same area. Any suggestions?

Sounds like a windshield seal, if it doesnt leak water, live with it. The other sound most likely your doors, also common, if it doesnt leak, dont worry.

Have you bothered to take the top off, and then putting it back on?

i had a wind noise coming from behind the tweeter speaker on the driver's side. it was super annoying. i temporarily fixed it by taping over the inside seal with masking tape.

i eventually took it in to the dealer and first they tried to seal around the outside, but it didn't work. they had to replace the entire windshield. all good now! take it in to the dealer.

By all means, spend a few minutes trying to diagnose the problem and think of potential fixes. But at the end of the day, this is why you have a warranty. Take it to the dealer.

I took the freedom tops off yesterday to see if they weren't set properly, and I got to drive for a few hours to enjoy. I'm going to try to wedge something removable in there to see if that helps and I'll take it in next week for service. I would live with it but it is annoying. Not loud but loud enough.

The clicking you hear is probably from the passenger door latch striker. It's common in the newer JKs. It's off just a little and may need adjustment. Wrap some tape around the latch piece on the door as a temp fix and see if that helps. The sound does sound like it's coming from the dash area. Drove me nuts until I found out about it. The tape worked for a while and the dealer adjusted it. Still does it on occasion but now that I know what it is, it doesn't bother me.
