Convertible roof noise

Post by Vroom » Fri Aug 10, 2018 7:17 pm

Does anyone with a convertible experience noise from the roof when it is up? Mine seems to creak. Solutions? Having said that I drive it with the roof down at every opportunity - awesome!

No noise from mine either
The car is so quiet with the roof up.

Mine is silent - maybe it needs greasing in the right places. I thought Jag dealers should do it at service?

All quiet on my 2018 model. The only sound I noticed was the leather seat belt guide can rub on the plastic surround if the seat is in a certain position.

Thanks everyone. I will talk to Jaguar and ask them to fix it. I'm not sure how easy it is to grease the roof mechanism as daytona650 suggests. Has anyone got any tips?

Car is booked in with Jaguar to fix. I will post the result when it’s done. Meantime roof down and loving it!

Car in with Jag today and they say that the sound is normal! I have remonstrated and will now arrange a test drive with one of their technicians. The noise only comes from the drivers side and you would think that if this was ‘normal then the same sound would come from the passenger side too which it doesn’t. Very disappointed with Jaguar’s lack of assistance.
