Frost

Just had first bad frost of the winter. When driving car the roof was making some really bad creaking and cracking noises - I am pretty sure it was just frozen water in the joins and gutters flexing over bumps etc but sure did sound bad. Luckily noises stopped after 10 mins or so when car had heated up. Has anyone else experienced this in frosty weather?

When it got "cold" (40F) in San Diego last year my car's roof started creaking a little. The dealer cleaned and lubricated the seals and that made the creaks go away.

Probably different from your situation with actual cold weather, but might not be made to make sure the seals are checked and lubricated anyway next time your car is in for service

This is normal. Its a convertible where the roof sits on the body. Ice forms, it makes noise. The fact it went away once it had all broken up/melted tells a story.
