Default Rattle while driving

I have never owned a convertible before and absolutely love my Cascada. I have had it for 3 months and have less than 1800 miles.

At first I noticed a rattle from the passenger side in the back. Now I have the rattle from both sides. I don't really notice it with the top down.

Does anyone else have the same rattle?

I have asked the same question a couple of times. My top rattles when up, usually when cornering over rough surfaces. The rattle is gone when the top is down, driving over any surface. I beginning to wonder is there is some chassis flexing that is causing the problem. If so, there is no cure and we will have to live with it.

I have a rattle when the top is up - seems to be from the top assembly near the window, but I cannot isolate it. Any help?

Default Soft Top Creak and Rattle

It seems to make less noise now that the weather is cooler. I bought mine in mid April and now that I think back, I didn't notice the racket until the weather warmed up.

I am due my final free oil change etc. in December and I will have my dealer look into the noise.

Default Rattle While Driving

We have experienced the same rattle you have described. At 3,686 miles our Buick dealer replaced roof mechanism brackets on both right and left sides. They checked with the Buick tech line for advice on how to solve the problem. I asked to see the brackets removed and saw that there is a small roller on each one. The parts manager pointed out flat spots on the rollers that they believe caused the noise.

The rattle was gone, but reappeared at 7,810 miles. Once again the same brackets( part # 133967030) have been replaced and we are now at 10,300 miles and the roof is quite.

Probably, until Opel redesigns this part, the rattles will reoccur.
