Fixing Squeaky Plastic Panels
I had a random question that I thought I would throw out there to see if anyone had any suggestions for me. I like my ride to be quiet. I can't stand squeaking plastic panels. Specifically, the housing around my window/door lock/mirror controls on the driver's side door squeaks/creaks. If I push on it, it usually stops, but I hate having to push on it every time I get in my truck. Is there any trick to fixing these kind of squeaks? Maybe using Armor-All on the parts, or some kind of grease or lubricant? Any tips would help!Matt

I use a very thin layer of clear silicon sealer to one or both surfaces. Apply, then let it dry thoroughly (up to 24 hours) the reassemble. Try it - if it doesn't work, the sealer can be easily removed.
