#94 of 149 2002 Sebring lxi convert top rattles on right side
Nov 18, 2009 (8:34 am)
my wife has a 2002 lxi with only 33k miles which is a great car.however the top on the right side (where the pin fits into the top of the windshield) sounds like metal hitting metal when ever we are on a bumpy or rough road..destroying an otherwise pleseant experience....I have owned several Chrysler convertibles going back to a 63 valiant..I have never had this problem..is it possible that the rubber seal on top of the windsheild needs replacing or is it some way to bolster that side? thanks

I had an 1986 Lebaron convertible and the window shattered. I replaced it with a plastic window (no redefogger). I had to go to a custom shop to have the work done. It cost approximately $300 to have it done. The plastic was sewed to the canvas convertible top. Plastic is O.K if you don't need the rear defogger and don't want to worry about a glass window shattering again. Good luck.

I have a 1995 Lebaron and had the same problem. The roof would go down and not come back up. You need to replace the convertible relay switch.

I did not get an answer...but taking a hint from another post...i put some Velcro in the actual cavity (where the pin fits into as weel as a couple of pieces around the outside of that cavity...took the car on the roads around my house where the rattles were most present and guess what..it works.....
now I ( and my b-in -law who also has one) have to find out how to correct where the issue where a portion of the top where it connects to the rear window is pulling away....

our vinyl came loose there as well. I super glued it back down and it holds really well. I thought there would be some sort of adj. for the hooks to tighten them up

thanks me too but I did not see an adjustment...the black Velcro really works and one can really not see it as an appearance detractor...and , in any case, the absence of noise is worth it..in my case we has some circular pieces of sticky back Velcro the is used to hang pictures and other objects.....I just cut them into halves and placed inside the cavity where the top pin fits..with of course the soft side out....and to ensure that there was not "bumping" from around the pin I placed a couple of pieces on the top of the cavity...works. fine
will try the super glue on the top
