Do you know if its your power steering by chance? I know old cars and
when the belt to the power steering heats up the power steering starts
to squek because the belt isnt gripping...i dont know if this is the
same for the new vettes...just some input from my end
I know explicitly that it is not my power steering as I can change the
sounds of the top squeaking by moving the latches that keep the top in place
and I can make the breaks squeak or not by merely pressing the breaks. I
don't know why you would suggest power steering squeaking based on my
Because he's no diagnostician - that's for sure.
You may be able to get some plastic "anti-squeak" shims for the brakes -
past that, some new pads.
As for the top, you need to investigate something you can put on the
weatherstrip to stop the squeak. Try the Corvette Forum for a much greater
population of owners.

tires the Firestone shop said that sometimes breaks just squeak and you
could cut the rotors and replace pads but that's just how it is. I disagree.
Other cars and other vettes do not squeak like mine. Both places seemed to
be saying it would be way more work (read way more expensive) than simply
putting in some plastic shims...

the keep the top down in the front. I believe I discussed it back here
before and was pointed to an official GM fix. In fact I went to the dealer
and mentioned the problem and the fix and he was like "Oh yeah, we've heard
of that fix, yada, yada" and they did that specific fix. It involved
something like making the rollers in the latches not roll anymore and
instead making them fixed. Again that helped for a while but now it's way

squeaks but other vette owners don't (Or do they? Anybody else got a squeaky
top?). And I think this only happens with the clear tops.
