I bought a new 06 convertible 4 weeks ago. I had it in the shop twice for rattles where the windows touch the top and also for door rattles.

After the 1st shop visit, it came out with a whistle like a tea kettle on the driver's window as well as the same rattles. On the 2nd visit, it was quiet for a few miles then all the rattles came back.

Is this the nature of the Beetle convertible?? I had a different type of convertible years ago and it didn't make any noise. Please advise because I am afraid if I keep taking it back to the dealer, I will inherit more noises or problems than I started. Otherwise, I am in love with my vehicle.

WD40! ... spray a little on the door catch mechanism and wipe a little on the rubber seals along windows ... voila, no squeaks or rattles

Also be aware that if you have your windblocker installed the pins that protrude into the sidewall can cause a sqeak (spay these with WD40 as well.
