Noise from convertible hood when closed

I have a 2004 996 turbo convertible. When driving with the hood closed there is some squeak/rattle from the top of the windshield. I wonder if anyone else has this problem or has a solution? Apart from this niggle .

    Hi there,
    Had mine just over a year, and with a car of it's age, and the fact we have rubbers all around us essentially, that will rub with some flex and age, you will hear more noise in a 'vert. Previous non Porsche convertibles have all had some kind of noise, which I think you're experiencing
     
    Without knowing what noise it actually is, it could just be the nuance of having a topless model, or, your rubbers might need some reconditioning.
     
    @GeoffB, put me onto this, (rubber seal lubricant is Krytox. VW part number G052172A1) although as yet, I have yet to find the time or weather to apply it to all of my rubber seals. It may, or may not help stop or quieten what you have, but, I'll be taking his advice and treating my rubber around the window seals and hood joins with it. It isn't cheap for the small volume it is, but he swears by it.

    Thanks, as you say it's not cheap but have ordered some and will let you know if it does the trick.

    Not sure if it's still available but you could buy wipes of Krytox from VW. It was a normal application on the EOS seals to keep them watertight. Occasionally you see it on eBay advertised as MG seal lubricant. It is expensive but you only need a little to keep the seals supple
