    Have a problem with my passenger T-top rattling in handle area.
    Any ideas on how to fix. I removed covering but didnt see anything that could be causing rattle.

    Thanks

    Mine do the same thing. Actually, the lock on my driver side came completely out. I think it could be the clip that holds the lock in place, does that look loose?

    Not really, It's a heavy sounding rattle (if that makes sense)
    I'm going to pull it apart again...

    Take your top off and remove I think 4 screws that holds in the plastic trim. On the T top handle there is a c clip looking thing in there, almost like a manual window handle clip. Take a screwdriver and carefully pop the clip off. Remove the handle and the trim and check all the bolts in the t top lock mechanism to make sure they're all tight. My lock was loos so I tightened the bolt on it

    Did you ever find the source of your rattle? I've got the same problem and can't find anything loose inside. The 02's don't have any bolts inside. Everything is held together by rivits or clips.

    No I never did but...... it just kinda stopped. I saw the same thing as you (when I took it apart) and it didnt make any sense to why this would make that loose sound, but it stopped.
