Ratting from convertible top or front end?

Noted in other posts I have been having alot of trouble trying to diagnosis this problem. When I go over bumps something rattles would this be the convertible top or something coming from the front end?

I had a similar problem. I took foam rubber pencil grips and slid them over the top's latch hooks. Took care of the noise I was having.

Try pulling on areas of the top when you hear the rattle. It'd be easier to determine where it's coming from.

Yeah also make sure it's got a deal there. I notice periodically I have to mine down then up.
