I slipped a short piece of rubber tubing through the loop and ty-wrapped in place. No more squeek!!!
hi, you may have seen that i tried that too. a couple of times, going so far as to jam screws and glue in that holder loop. still had squeak. the reason that helps the issue is because it keeps the hardline that I am discussing from moving...if you follow that rubber line, it turns into that hardline that goes to that bracket. so securing that at the loop place is just a stopgap...the real issue is further up the line, at the bracket.

if you think about it, that rubber would not make a squeak like does not move back and forth/side to just would bump in its holder. the squeak comes from the me, and the others, when you find his spot, you KNOW it is sounds EXACTLY like the
noise we hear in the car.
