    Hello,

    Sorry if there's already a thread on this but I couldn't find one using the search.

    Has anyone experienced the squeaky door handle when opening the lever?

    It sounds like some metal piece is scraping the walls.

    Will lubing it be safe?

    Thanks!

    I had this issue at delivery - the front passenger door. I had the service center lube it. No issues anymore.

    Im also having the same squeaky door issue, worse when it’s cold. To people who have had it repaired, how many doors did they lube and how long did it take?

    I've had the same problem for months. Kinda got used to it, but I'll try some lube.

    Thanks for the alternative suggestions! I ended up taking it to a nearby service center after I got some ppf applied and the lubricated all 4 doors in about 1 1/4 hrs.

    Since it’ll get a lot colder in the winter months where I live, I knew it wouldn’t go away anytime soon
