Squeaky rear doors, creaky front doors - any known fixes?

Hi all,

TSB 13-09-09 fixed my front suspension clunk. Now all that's left is a crunching noise from the front end over speed bumps; rattles in the instrument cluster, door panels, and B-pillar trim; and... what's been annoying me as of late:

Creaking driver's door hinge

Some say the creaking driver's door hinge is a body issue. But any luck with the squeaking rear doors? I've tried spraying SailKote lubricant behind the trim without much success.

I have similar issues that I have yet to be fully corrected. My dealer replaced the door hinge on my driver door and it had almost no effect. WD-40 helped for a day or two. My driver side A-pillar also creaks occasionally while I'm driving.

Maybe try your dealer and see if they have anything in mind.

Graphite spray works really good for metal-on-metal squeaks, like the door hinges. It's sold at most auto parts stores for around $4- it's a black substance though, so you'll want to keep it out of anything you don't want to have a dark tinge to it.

I went to the dealership last year for the creaking sound in the front door and they couldn't fix it. They showed me a Edge with the same creaking sound. It doesn't bother me as much as it did in the beginning so its whatever

I have the squeaky c-pillar trim, but I'm not sure about how to go about fixing it without "taking it in".
