Another simple check. I noticed my sunroof creaking at times when it's "cold" outside. I lubricated the trim and the edge of the sunroof I could reach with the roof open and creak gone. Maybe through...

Be careful with that. A snapped timing belt on an interference engine will kill the engine. You'll be looking at a head rebuild at a minimum.

I had an option when I had Lasik done... near vision corrected and wear glasses or contacts for distance or vice-versa. I chose distance vision and use readers; that was 13 years ago.

My guess is the wiper arm. They will whistle like a train!
