Default Squeak between top and windshield header

Have a 2005 convertible. No history of issues with the top. Some squeaks around the windows that I've learned to live with.

A couple months back I got hit by a deer. Body and engine work was done and car seemed good as new. Last couple weeks I've noticed a lot of squeaking between the top and the windshield. Not sure if its related to the accident and if its something I can resolve. Anyone have a similar issue or possible solutions? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

You might want to try some silicone lube on the latches that lock the top. They will make some odd noises at times if they are dry. I had this issue and the lube resolved it, I now clean and relube every year.
