2012 E350 Cabriolet has rattles in roof.

Quite squeaky and rattley over bumps. Especially bad above doors where the roof touches the windows. Is this normal? Any solutions? New seals or lubrication. Any advice appreciated. By the way, car is very quiet with the top down.

Thanks

You need to lubricate the seals. MBZ sells a very good lubricant. It's expensive, and a tiny vial, but it's worth it and will last a lifetime. This info below has the part number for the lubricant and instruction on what to do. It's for the W209 CLK, but the W207 is identical:
