    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!

    try popping the panel off and apply elmers glue, that way it wont be permanent, but it could solve your problems. i havent tried it, but its an idea

    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.
