Squeaky rear side panel....

Recommended Posts

As I delve further into this, and try to isolate the problem on my '99 C2 Cab, I find the driver's side rear window area and panel containing the speaker are the area from which this noise originates.

Driving down the road it sounds like rubber against rubber. I dropped the seat back to see if that changed anything - nothing changed. I reached around and pressed on the back carpet against the firewall and it lessened a bit but not 100%. I also tried pressing on the side interior panel (speakers, windstop hold) and that seems to be the general fix.

There's a lot of space in that general area looking down from the convertible top for the mechanism. Not sure if I should remove the side panel (what is best way) and install some felt or other sound deadeners (and risk the all to frequent worsening of the problem), or try another fix.

Does not seem to be a window seal problem, though I'd not rule anything out yet. Definitely not dried out seals. They look and function just fine. And dropping the window a bit does not solve the problem.

Loren any chance of sending them to me too. I put my top back yesterday. First time in over 6 months...indicative of the sort of weather we have been getting here in the UK. I have got sqeakes and rattles all over the place. I seem to remember someone mentioning some sort of silicon yuck to put on the rubbers. Any ideas?

Eric, if you down your rear quater windows does the noise stop? Mine does. I am convinced its where the rubber meets the roof in my case.
