Squeking doors

Hi there alfisti!
I was just wondering if anyone could tell me how to fix the noise coming from the door rubbers. It make a squeking sound as the rubber rubs against the body. Should i replace the rubbers or is there an other alternative? Thanks

I would try some silicon based lubricating spray. A good coating should do the trick.

Re: Squeking doors

try adjusting the door so it sits tighter against the rubber.

Re: Squeking doors

I am glad to see that I am not the only one with the same problem. I have been back to the dealer 3 times adjusting and tightening one of the doors. It takes only a few days after the adjustment and the noise is back again. After the 3rd time, the door is still ok but I am sure that it will start again. Anyone that has found a permanent solution?

Re: Squeking doors

I've got the same problem - all 4 of my doors do it, but the front two are worse. I've tried tightening them up and using oil, talc, wax, grease etc etc etc. Still noisy!

Re: Squeking doors

Lightly wipe down the door rubbers and metal of the sills
Then re-grease the rubbers with a silicone grease spray.

Don't forget the rubber pad up in the wing that the
edge of the door can rub against when opening/closing.
