Door Squeak driving me nuts

So as the thread title states there is a squeaky noise coming from around ear level right at my door and it is driving me nuts. Has anyone had this problem or know how to fix it? I thought maybe it was the plastic at first so i held it really tight but there was still the annoying noise. I am thinking that it is the rubber weather stripping that runs around the door frame. Could this be the problem? Any help or leads on where to fix this greatly appreciated, and hopefully i posted in the right section.

Put some armor all on a rag and wipe the seals down.

I pulled the weather seal off my drivers door and pulled 3/8" clear vinyl tubing through it. its like 10 to 12 feet long. Had to use a electricians fishing ling to pull it through the hole. Door shuts tight and no squeaks, one day I'll do the other 3. Got vinyl tubing from home depot, they were out of the 3/8" surgical tubing which is a lot softer and probably would of went through the hole a lot easier.

Yea the tubing is a good mod to do IF it needs it, it may not. And the weather strip might not even be the squeak on this truck. That's why I suggested the armor all, so he can find out if its even the weather strip cheap and easy.
