Ironically, my FF has EXACTLY the same squeak now, and there is no amount of grease or lube that will make it go away. I guess that I am glad that it is a pretty common issue. I doubt the door will fall off, so I will not worry much about it going forward.

This is just another small example of marginal fit and finish that most of us have come to expect with automotive manufacturing in the United States.
