Fixing A Pillar Creak

Recommended Posts

I have a Boxster 987-1 with a frequent and annoying 'creak' when the car goes over bumps or flexes. I have searched this forum and found a TSB of how to deal with the noise but it does not tell you how to remove the A Pillar trim. The top portion is easy with removal of the visor but it is also secured somewhere below. Are there instructions for doing this anywhere or can someone provide instructions?

I have the same problem. Where is the TSB? On this site?

I did a search and found it in the DIY Section under 'Porsche TSB" under pillar creak and found it there. Basically it involves getting felt tape and taping the section of the trim that interfaces with the windscreen
