Sorry it took me so long to reply. Basically you can identify the areas making noise by having the sunroof open and just localizing. It's most likely the mount instead of the bar since a lot of science goes into making it quiet. Since the mount has a huge open gap where the wind would be able to swirl around and make noise it's the most suspicious area.
Would I recommend the bar? Sure since they were easy to install and take off and once I put the gaffers tape around the mount it was pretty quiet. If I could do it again, though, I'd get the extended arms because it'll help with tie downs. The flush bar, which I have, doesn't have anywhere to tie down a rope.
So after all is said and done, it doesn't matter if the mount make noise or not if I actually have something to carry on the crossbar since that will be making all the noise too.
