My back windows rattle like crazy. What are the prime suspects? Any helpful posts?

 

Cheers!

Worn out window felts.  Temporary quieting is to strategically insert thin strips of cardboard [on the inside] between the felt strip backing and the car body.  Or paper matches.

The cardboard is a nice temp fix. I'll research a longer-term fix, as well. Need to preserve this glass.

Thank you! Great to have it back on the road.

Buying the felt for a Roadster which is readily avalible and installing (this is key) it should stop the rattle for 15-20 years

Any links to the Roadster felt?
