I was just kidding, good sir! This is what I thought it was pointing to. Please monitor it and let me know by PM if the noise comes back (include your VIN, mileage, contact info, and dealer city/state); I'll loop in your area's Customer Service Manager if need be.

As a side note, has anyone else had any problems with weather stripping? I had my weather stripping fall off the drivers side a couple weeks ago, and took it in for the wiper motor recall. Told them about the problem, they ordered the stripping, and fixed it last week. Problem is, it's sounding a lot noisier than it used to. Like my window isn't properly shut, etc... and I know it's the weather stripping. I don't want to rush back over there and tell them to do it again...
Please PM me your VIN, mileage, contact info, and dealer city/state; I'll forward all details to your region's Customer Service Manager for review. When do you plan on taking it in for service?

This is getting quite frustrating! I think I'm now on my 4th trip here since June and there's still no resolution. :mad:...
I totally understand your frustration! :( Are they looking into your MFT issues as well?
