Sqeakign and rattlign seals

Recommended Posts

Hi - can someone advise please.....It got quite cokld here in the UK and my C4cab (1999) seems to be sqeaking and rattling from the seals around the doors. It not especially loud nut quite annoying. Are the seals "drying out" and what is the best way to lubricate them. I tried using silcone grease on a previous car seals but all that seemed ot do was smear the windows with grease which took hours to clean off! The problems have got worse since the weather turned colder.....If I wind down the windows the noises stop - but when I put the windows up again - they creak and sqeak from the seals after 2 minutes.

thanks for any advice

Krytox is a Dupont product used in manufacturing clean room applications, as non splattering lubricant. In case you can't find it, it is sold in industrial supply houses, could be cheaper than the dealer. Places like McMaster Carr, etc.

Alex you are not the only one - even down here in London it's getting cold and weather forcast says there will be 6 inch of snow tomorrow!

my cab also develops creaks/squeaks when cold weather arrives. Have tried gummy pfledge but it only works for a short period and you have to keep applying them around the trims. I also got some 'drops' that a dealer gave me free of charge they said they'd drop few into the gap between glass and door trim and move the windows up and down to stop the squeaks but I am relucant to try as it sounds like it'll mess up the window glass big time LOL

The problem g4ts worse with the hardtop on. Grrr.....

I've always used Meguiar's plastic and rubber protectant on all my rubber seals.

(or dash & vinyl protectant - different products use different names)

Keeps them soft and flexible, and black! :thumbup:

I've been doing that for years and the seals actually remain in good condition that way.
