Metal on metal clicking noise w/top up in my left ear

Anyone out there experiencing a clicking noise with the top up in their left ear? Sounds like metal on metal and is a rattle when going over bumps. I located the source, but don't know how to fix it. If I reach my hand over my left shoulder and grab the 2 metal braces under the canvas I can make the noise stop. Seems to be coming from the joint there.

Any ideas?

A few people including myself have had a clicking noise that you don't normally notice till the top is up. Maybe by grabbing the top you are putting downward pressure on the window+door down to the cause, (in our case) the door catch mounted on the body. The pin is loose making it click. To check if its coming from there roll down the window then push down on the back of the door near the handle. (CLICK)

Not quite sure how, but I fixed it. I spend an hour pulling, pushing the metal bars and then I sprayed with WD-40. Noise gone.

I cut two sections of open cell black foam and stuffed the area over the door. Noise gone along with a lot of wind noise
