Hi all,

Still having to drive with the windows slightly down to avoid the creaking from the door seals.

Anybody have any answers? Waiting to go back to dealer again!! They have ordered a "Rattle & Squeak kit " from Ford which is on back order at the moment!!

Hi, I was looking for an answer as to what causes the creaking noise coming from the door seals and how i can cure this . Dealer has replaced seals but with no success. They say they can do no more!! As i said in my previous post they have ordered a kit which is on back order to try.
There is no problem on a wet day, but when it is dry it is a very annoying creaking from front doors especially.

Thanks for your reply Ian

As a guess.....I'm pretty sure the doors can be adjusted slightly....I'd have though making it so they compressed the seals to a greater extent would solve the problem. Whether this would cause other problems I can't say.

Either spray the seals with silicone spray or do the same to the hinge areas.
You can use silicone grease on the hinge but not on the seals as it will mark any/all clothing it comes into contact with.

Autoglym rubber drssing or Aerospace 303 are good.
BMW Z3 forum members swear by Gummi Pfledge for soft top rubber seals.

If you were to have the door strikers adjusted this can make the door a pain to close.
Autoglym worked on mine, while I was there I polished the paintwork around the door aperture and dressed the Door seal ( felt bit as well! ) never creaked since!

I totally agree with these comments.
Leave door adjustments well alone or the doors won't look right, close easily and you may then get other wind related noises.

The Autoglym rubber dressing is good stuff.
Silicone spray ( bought from a drapers or somewhere like Dunelm)is also handy for lubricating fabric related components.
I use it on the fabric belt in my roller shutter garage door.
WhenI owned a marquee manufacturing business we used it for lubricating the sewing machines as it doesn't stain the fabric.
