Assuming we're talking the middle one here. Have you checked the tabs on the screen and roll bar? One of mine was broken and it rattled so bad I took it out. Replaced the tab, and it helped.

I added heavy felt side from velcro under the screen, now quiet and tight, and it doesn't show.

My windscreen rattled for my first year of ownership. On MNBoxster's advice, I went to the hardware store and bought weatherstriping that you would use on a front door or screen door. Use it to wedge the windscreen in nice and tight, and voila, not more rattling.

Also, make sure to zip tie the plastic pieces behind the seats. I lost one and they are expensive ( $117 each ) to replace !

Hi, I used a thin strip of transparent silicone along the center of frame and if you need to remove the wind screen it will come off, and then just reapply.
