Rattle from closed soft top

I have a rattle on one side of my top when closed. The rattle seams to be coming from just above the sun visor on the passenger side. Its more of a creaking sound, not a loose screw or nut moving around

Its not the sun visor, but the top.

I used a conditioner on all the rubber on the top of the windshield and the rubber seal on the edge of the top. Still have a rattle.

I generally ride top down, but even here in sunny San Diego, there are time i want the top up.

No water leaks, just an annoying creaking sound

Any ideas? is there an adjustment to maybe pull the top tighter to the windshield?

I have only had the car for a few weeks and LOVE it. If the price I have to pay to drive such a wonderful machine, is a minor rattle, so be it!
