Could be the window regulators too. Had those go on both sides. Replaced under warranty.


EDIT: If it sounds like this




it's the regulators, don't bother lubing.

Mine sounds exactly like that but idk how regulators make that sound. It sounds like something is pressing against the glass. My dealer wants $700 to replace the one door regulator. I told them to go fuck themselves haha. My warranty just expired when this started happening on my end.

I'm wondering if I remove my door panel if I'll be able to cleaner the inner felt and what not that's not really accessible from just rolling the window down and make wiggle some stuff around. I might try replacing the window molding like done in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LnMSpj2lMOk

No not the entire door panel. It was a 20 minute job. I didn't see him do the repair but I believe what he did was pop out the trim molding with a pick tool and lube/pass a wire to remove all the dirt that was stuck there.

Also my window did the same noise as in the video that was posted and it was not a bad window regulator. Please try this before it could save you some money.

Mine also made the exact same noise as the video, it wasnít a bad regulator either, just needed cleaning/lubrication, it stopped not long after with a bit of use.

I noticed mine completely stop if it's under 70 degrees (which is rare in FL). If it's above 70, it's shrieks all the way up. Thinking I'm gonna take my door panel off for a deep cleaning. Replace the felt too probably.
