It sounds like a high school class ring hitting the passenger window. I have tried to determine the exact location of the sound, without luck. The top is in good shape and the frame is, too. Any ideas? Thx.
The cracking sound from the top generally comes from the two pieces that make the center bow.
When they expand and move against each other you can hear the cracking sound, also when you push up on the bow from inside the car.
The way I've cured it is by spraying a silicone lubricant between the parts.
This will generally cure it for one or two seasons and then it comes back as the silicone dries.
Happy Boxstering,
