Noise from cab top

Recommended Posts


I have the noise from the soft top on by 2004 C2 Cab. I've got the TSB and have a quick question - the TSB talks about applying grease on a rubber spacer as show below, however this actually looks like a cast piece of metal, not rubber... Do I have the right piece? It actualy looks like it's got some residual grease on it so it looks right.

Also, the krytox grease appeas to be $70 (???) a tube - it threre a non-porsche equivalent someone could recommend?

The best stuff for lubricating the noisy rubber bits on the top used to be a now discontinued BMW product named “Gummi-Pflege”, which is really just a type of thin silicone grease. You can probably do just as well with spray silicone and rub it in.

I don't think the piece in the diagram is the metal piece you are seeing, sorry I can be of more help - I am a bit aggressive with lubrication when I hear a squeak and hit every joint/hinge and piece of rubber that i can find. Hope this helps.

Mine is definitely a black rubber block. It has signs of wear on it and was dry. The driver's side started to squeak loudly, at first when it was cold out ~40f, then most of the time. A little silicone grease stopped it.
