My 2008 cabrio has developed a chirp on the left side when I go over a bump.
It sounds like it is coming from the dash. I have held on to everything I could reach, but the chirp keeps coming.

Any ideas on how to isolate it?

Thanks.

look at the top rail. on the pin there is a rubber grommet. I bet it is worn and looks like a oval. (like mine) give it a half turn and start looking for a new grommet.

Thanks for the response.

Here's a dumb question: Where is the "top rail?"

Top rail. That thing you take off and store in the tail gate when you put the top down and go full topless. :D
Mine rattled on the passenger side until I lubed the pin on the front end of the rail.

D'oh! :idiot: Of course. I'll give it a try and see what happens. Thanks for your patience and your suggestions.
