    Service center has to adjust them - it's a 45 min thing but you need an appointment

    Picked up my CPO 2016 Model X 75D precisely 3 weeks ago today. Within a few days noticed the FWD would make some noise. Had a service visit for that and a few other small items yesterday, all taken care of under warranty. They added lubricant which seems to have solved the issues. Given the car had 6k miles on it and the doors probably had a lot of exercise this seems fitting.

    Years ago we had a Volkswagen Eos, which has a very complex folding top. Over time it too make some interesting noises and needed lubrication. There was actually a product you could buy that I learned about that could be applied ones self if you were daring enough to do so. We did, and it worked nicely-- forget name of product, but wont recommend it here as it may not be proper for the FWD.

    Either way, just call your local service center, they'll be happy to resolve this for you.
