Windows to roof rattle / vibration

17262 Views 31 Replies 20 Participants Last post by  Cooper S Dan
Our Cooper Conv has a very annoying window rattle / vibration. This only happens when the roof is up and both windows are up. If I put down the drivers window a small amount or the small Qtr window it stops.

Anybody else got this ? Any suggestions ?

I cured this on my car by squirting a small amount of Halfords window rubber lubricant into the seal around the window pane of the rear quarter windows. Now they are silent and it had been bugging me since day one (18 months).
hi - i have this problem as well and it is doing my head in!! :angry:

reluctant to take it to mini as my warrenty ran out last week (sods law)

did your solution work long term? :puzzled:
I have the same problem, despite it going in three times to be fixed - to be fair, it was fixed the first time and lasted for about six weeks, but on a dry day (which is why the sealant lubricant would seem an appropriate fix), it is really annoying. :angry:

I will stop at Halfords next time I'm passing and let you know if it works for me.
cheers matt - i'm hoping to find some time tomorrow as well to get to halfords so whoever tried it first!! :D
managed to get there late on today so i've bought it - this is what it looks like:

i'm going to give it a try tomorrow :nice:
