I have a jag xk8 convertible with a rattle mainly at low speed (30 ish). It seems to be around the top of the screen when the roof is up although sometimes it is there with the roof down but not as bad. I have tried taping a bit of rubber around the roof securing mechanism which seemed to work but then came back again. I wondered if this is a common problem with hopefully an easy fix!

I left the convertible top of my 2005 Crossfire in an intermediate position for more than 10 minutes and the hydraulics depressurized (which is normal). Now I can't get my convertible top to go all the way down, I have the top out of sequence, and the red light on the button for the top is flashing (which tells me I have a relay problem) because it's out of sequence. How do I get the top back in sequence (either all the way up or down) so the button will work again?
