    Question Rattling T Tops

    Does anyone know if there is a way to adjust or tighten up the T tops on our cars? Mine started making squeaking and rattling noises a while back and they never used to. I'd like to quiet them down a bit if possible.

    Any help is appreciated.

    It's my understanding that you may have a frame alignment issue if you're experiencing rattling after even a minor wreck, I'd have it looked into professionally probably.

    I've also heard leaks can be a sign of a frame issue as well, but also could be weatherstripping. My 02 T/A's tops leak slightly but the car drives straight as an arrow so who knows?
