I have failed miserably to stop my doors squeaking when the side screens are fitted. Can anybody recommend a fix? Thanks in advance.

I wish I knew as well, have tried bending the rear stay as the screens were so tight against the body that they have printed the material in to the paintwork. This did help a bit with the squeaks but they are still there.

Things I've done:

Neoprene tape on bottom edges of door tops (where they meet the door = seals gaps, makes a tight fit and invisible to see)
Librands door top stay
Extra silicon around edges of perspex
Chunk of U channel rubber seal that fits on the edge of the windscreen frame (push fit on the draught excluders)

I`ve put paint protection film about 1" wide along the tops of the doors - stops squeaking and rubbing of the paint if dust/grit gets in.

I rub a tiny bit of clear tyre dressing into all the rubber seals where they contact any bodywork or the sidescreen alloy, works for me

The squeaks on my +4 get worse when I have cleaned and polished the car
The handbook tells me at least every month to Check and lubricate door rubber weatherstrips.
No clue as to what to use but been thinking of using silicon grease.

Many moons ago I had an S2000. To stop squeaks From the soft top they sold a Tube of silicone grease for the rubbers. Even had a part number.

Me too.
I have one particularly annoying squeak that seems to move around behind my ear. No idea what it is.

Use tyre dressing or rubber shine. The squeaking is often where the sidescreen overlaps the B panel, and without paint protection film can eventually mark the paint.
