Door Squeak

The passenger's rear door on my 07 squeaks every time I hit a bump. It is driving me absolutely crazy. I have tried everything I can think of to stop the squeak. I am at the point where I am considering rubbing Tabasco inside my nose, and rubbing the snot around the weatherstripping on the door!!!

Can someone make a suggestion as to what I can do to stop this. I want to open the door and jump out into traffic!!!

Any suggestions will be much appreciated!!!!

You can try spraying a thin coating of silicon lube on the area of the door frame that the seal contacts, but it will need to be reapplied over time.

Put some WD-40 on a rag and wipe it on all the weatherstripping/rubber around the door. Works for mine.

WOW, mine does the same thing. To add to the annoyance my window whistles when going over 45 mph.

Add another one to the mix. It's horrendous. I havent tried lubing the seals yet but I have had some of the interior apart and the rear seat out trying to isolate it with no luck. It sounds like the pendulum on the seat belt tensioner but isnt. Guess some silicone spray on the seals is next on the list.

Same here on the stupid squeek. Mine is between the driver and the suicide door right next to my head. Driving me insane! Gonna try some graphite lube on the weather stripping. Maybe that will do the trick.

I had the seatbelt squeak in my ol' F150. Never fixed it, but I did identify that as being the source.

Ended up applying white grease to the weatherstripping. Its working so far. But I feel like I'm only fixing the symptom, not the actual problem. It was suggested to me to replace the door hinge pins. That over time (from people hanging on the door, etc..) it will wear a little and allow movement causing the noise. But it doesn't look like they come out to easy.
