Porsche Speedster Humps Noises

I have a 2001 Boxster S with factory Porsche speedster humps that I purchased separately (but are OEM and not the aftermarket ones). The past few times that I have put them on they make a fair amount of "creaking" noises - always at lower speeds and seemingly by the driver's spin lock (but then again everything always seem to come that that spot). Anyone have any experience with this and know how to tighten things up to get rid of this noise. Many thanks in advance.

They aren't really designed with lots of mounting points that keep them completely flat and in contact with the body at all points - at all times. They will creak a little over bumps and occasionally. I haven't seen/heard yours so I couldn't say if yours is normal or more than that. But.....they look really cool.
