That one is hit or miss. I did it and still have rattles going over bumps.

I've been chasing down rattles for a while and decided it's pointless to continue. Every one I fix two new ones pop up. It's the nature of the beast. Just look at the mk7 thread on vortex and you'll see new 2015 owners dealing with rattles and creaks. In mine there are so many creaks it's like driving in a 20 year old cheap motel bed.

I used to take drives with no music just to try and find the source and it's maddening. Pure insanity to try and tackle them all. I'm not taking off every single panel of my car.

I use to try to fix the rattles and squeaks but it's futile. Now I just turn the music up.

Honestly, I think that helped with wind noise more than rattles. Cheap and easy to do so why not?

I'm hoping it fixes the squeaky creaky noise I get from the doors as I go over speed bumps and out of the parking garage. The silicon spray I use works for a time so I know that's the weather stripping.

SailKote.

It's a marine dry lubricant spray.
Spray it on the felt portion of your weather stripping - and for that matter on or anything else that's giving you an auditory problem.
It's far and away the best thing I've ever tried for such things.
'Matter of fact, it's the only thing that's given me real results.

Well I think I got the major squeaks now. I got the 1/4 inch tubing in and put down some more silicone lubricant

Sailkote.

Think about this sound.
We refer to it as a squeak or rattle, but it's more like the sound a balloon makes when rubbed (for those of us who rub balloons, or a leather jacket, or rubber boots sound.
It's the sound of rubber meeting felt, and rubbing against each other.

Damn that is one annoying sound

I found this ghetto mod helped a lot:


Used a tiny bit of gorilla tape and it no longer sounds like my passenger door is falling off on rough roads. (This is a different rattle than the squeaking shown in the vid). I'd say it's 95% better. Still a tiny rattle that I think I'd have to yank the door panel off to get to it. Maybe another day.

ElectricEye, how does SailKote compare to Infinilube (dry silicon based) for this application/fix?
