Have a problem I've not seen anywhere else on this forum or anywhere I've searched

I've had a snapping or cracking noise coming from the upper left corner of my windshield for some time, driving me nuts. A little concerning as I've replaced two windshields on this 2013 Jeep, the second for mysterious reasons. I'm worried there's some flex there that is cracking my windshield.

After a great deal of searching I've narrowed the problem down to the bolts that connect the rollbar to the A-pillar. It appears one of them has been slipping given the worn paint from it's original factory location.

The trouble is, I've tightened the bolts to the extent I am worried about stripping them out - and any other bolt connected to the windshield or rollbar. I still have the snapping problems going over bumps.

When I remove the bolts, I can feel the body flexing underneath them.

Help! I taught myself how to upload videos on youtube to give you an idea:

The top corner bolts pretty much keep the windshield up. The bolts on the sides give the frame it's rigidity. I would focus more on those.
