2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited freedom top noise

I just purchased a 2015 Jeep Wrangler unlimited in December of 2014. I had a ticking noise on passenger side on seam of panel(by soundbar... Service pulled panels and replaced noise went away. Month later it started again but by the center latch , they removed and replaced them again. Now I have a noise off and on by the driver side bolt that goes through sound bar, sounds like it's between soundbar and roof in that area. Catch is it happens randomly, almost like when defroster is on and cab heats up, not necessarily when I hit bumps. Any thoughts? I have buddys that say their roofs make zero noise... Do they make noise? Only have 2000 miles and zero off road. Any help appreciated. Doesn't make noise all the time and radio has to be down or off to really hear it, but once heard you can hear it over radio.

My hardtop doesn't make any such noise, though if one has to have the radio turned 'off' to hear it, I might not because I have the radio 'on' just about all the time.

One thing I do know, is that over tightening the top panels is actually bad.

How tight should the bolts going through the soundbar into the panels be exactly? Could one pull both bolts out and then screw them back in correctly?

Does anyone think the bolt on driver side, or both sides , be slightly too tight? Maybe that is what is causing the sound randomly? The only solid situation I can say is it was when cabin heated up with the heat on...not 100% on that, but pretty solid.

My 2010 tops creak depending on outside temp. It does not bother me though.
