I know it an old post but I got some silicone spray and sprayed in all the joints around the windscreen inner trim. Ie around the roof lock holes and it's stopped the creaking going over uneven surfaces.

Have used the same in the past, it doesn't require much to elimate the rattles and a cheap as chips fix :thumbsup:

Problem: hissing and knocking sound when hard cornering. Only when luggage curtain is out.

Location: from the luggage area.

Fault: some (@&##) piece has come loose inside the curtain mechanism, sliding loudly on the axle by the slightest of cornering force.

Solution: buy a new curtain assembly, replace.

Put some black heat shrink over and heat it up so it grips tightly. As its rubberised it will remove the hard plastic on plastic rattle.
