Hi Rog, I had the same squeak and found that it came from the door catch. A bit of grease on the post that sticks out on the rear or body side of the door catch sorted it.

In my case they were very loud and squeaking noises. It was the contact of the side windows at the front on the rubber of the A pillar/wind screen. But it was so loud that I could not have located it. Just apply the rubber on the A-pillar with silicone and the spook was over for years.

Just had a quick glance are we talking about the side screens !. I have gone into a car shop in Sunderland he has rolls of one sided sponge sticking tape in many sizes . I stick one on top of the other ( BLACK ON THE GREEN till I i get the thickness I require . Hence doors and side screens NOT MARKED . You can cut it to match . its been on mine a long time and you cannot see it .

Ok thank you very much to everybody. Some good pointers and tips thumbs

I shall systematically work through all of the suggestions. The tyre dressing and paint protection film that I don’t have are now on order. And thanks for the heads up on the paint damage. Had a good close inspection and think I’ve just caught the foam padded twill pressure points on the screens from damaging the paint, just in the nick of time...

All done and dusted thanks. My creaky squeaky groaning side screens are silent.

Rubber door seals polished buffed and lubed, ptfe grease on the catches and a couple of patches of paint protection film strategically placed.

Who knows, side screens on could be the new norm woohoo
