Weird sound after getting top TSB

I had the convertible top TSB done on my 2011 convertible and ever since I got it fixed I've had a rattling/squeaking/rubbing sound(not sure how to describe it) from the rear drivers side of the top when driving with the top up. Has anyone else experienced this?

Are you 100% sure it is only with the top up?

I thought I had the same thing going on but the mechanic determined it was still making noise with the top down. It turned out to be something loose in the rear end mounts. The convertible top and storage cavity are great conductors or sounds.

I'm not sure. I guess I'll have someone ride in the back next time I have the top down to listen for it. Was the mechanic able to fix it?

Oh boy, exactly what I'm looking to avoid. Haven't brought my 2011's top in for the TSB yet, and now am wondering if I should. Need to eliminate some rear wind noise.

It did eliminate a good deal of wind noise for me and I don't know if I just got used to it or what but the sound isn't as noticeable as it was when I first got it back.

my guess would be that something is overtightened.
