    Any recommendations on getting the front windows to stop squeaking so much? The issue has been brought up to the SC a number of times and every time it comes back, the squeak is initially gone, but eventually it will come back with a vengeance (to the point where it is embarrassing to pull the window down with people around as it literally sounds like someone passing gas...). I think beyond adjusting the window fit, someone suggested using some rubber protectant. For those who have dealt with this problem, do you recommend any specific brand? Would the standard Armor-all do? thanks

    Last time I told people to use WD40 on other squeaky stuff I got so many disagrees. So, just bring it to SC again and again until they fix it. People are expecting permanent fix so you should too.

    Like you I have brought it in and it was gone initially, twice. It came back shortly after so I gave up. There are so many compromises to make on this car that we’ve all gotten used to.

    I've never had this issue in the model x, but when i had the issue with my Lexus it was because of dry gaskets and i got a lubricant for that...

    I had the same issue. Here is diagnosis and fix:

    Concern: Customer states: FL window has a crackling sound.
    Pay Type: Warranty
    Corrections: Interior NVH General Diagnosis
    Technician recommends using bead maker. If noise is still present replace belt molding.
    Corrections: Seal - Door Front Outer Belt - LH
    Replaced belt molding and tested. Noise no longer present
    Part Quantity OUTER BELT SEAL ASS'Y,LH FR 1

    Ditto on the window noise issue. Here's what my local SC did:

    Concern: Customer states the left front window was making a clicking noise when rolling up
    or down. Window regulator was special ordered.
    Pay Type: Warranty
    Corrections: Window Regulator - Front - LH
    Verified customer's concern, found driver's side front window regulator to be inoperative.
    Removed and replaced driver's front window regulator. Driver's side front window currently
    operating as designed.
    Part Quantity
    RWK ASSY - WINDOW REGULATOR, FR LH
    (1028818-90-C)



    Repair was completed two weeks ago and so far it's silent.

    Thanks folks. To clarify, it's not a mechanical noise, but what sounds like the rubbing of the glass against the rubber molding in the rear door frame.

    My window regulator was also replaced. Noise came back after a while.
