My 06 xlr with 2800 miles has been to the dealer 3 times to fix a constant squeak in left side. Sounds like a New Your taxi. Sounds like it's in the window/roof area.
Dealer says it is interior panels in rear quarter rubbing:has insulated to no avail.

I'm trying to schedule my fourth appointment with a difficult dealer.I can't get by service adviser.The service manager does not take customer calls and the customer service rep refers you back to your service advisor.

They're not going to be able to fix this car.

Iwould appreciate suggested next steps--Who to contact

Go to the Sales Manager and if he is unavailable go to the General Manager.

They are interested in you ---hopefully and will help you get the squeek fixed.

Also see if there is another dealer close to you that you wouldn't mind doing business with--both sales and service (if it works oout) then give them a try.

Lastly Cadillac Customer Service will try and work it out for you.

Good Luck.

My 06 xlr with 5000 miles has many squeaks ,but the most annoying is the drivers window where it meets the top.The car spent 6 weeks at the dealer [4 visits] and the last time the dealer replaced the glass. This worked for about 1000 miles and now the squeak is back along with some new ones.

Does anyone have a problem with squeaks? I am unsure if this is something that I just have to live with in this car .My retractible 08 slk never squeaked even though I drive on bad NY streets.

My '07-V with 1300 miles on it developed the exact same squeak. I put a little Krytox on the weatherstripping and it's gone away and stayed gone.

Brad, Another remedy I found for the back rest rubbing against the fiberglass was liquid soap. You might want to try the liquid soap if it's weather stripping. I never hear a squeak out of it.

If you guys are having roof weatherstrip squeaks here is a fix that I have first hand knowledge with. You must thoroughly clean the w/strip first then apply the lubricant. We had an SLK that drove us nuts with the squeaks and once we used this stuff the squeaks were gone.

SOLVE YOUR SQUEAKY ROOF PROBLEM:
Following is a copy of MERCEDES TECHNICAL SERVICE BULLETIN #TSB AF77.30-U-1200AG; Squeaking and tearing noises at all Vario roof seals.

Remedy:
1) Clean contact points on seal on both sides.
2) After cleaning, apply special lubricant to dry seal and allow to soak in for approx. 20 min.
3) Open and close vario roof a number of times.
4) Remove excess lubricant.

Part number for special lubricant is 001 989 50 51.
IF YOUR CAR IS STILL UNDER WARRANTY THE DEALER WILL PERFORM THIS SERVICE FOR FREE.

I do not recall how much this stuff was but it was not expensive. Hope it works for you! :D

Regards,

Elfred

I use a liberal application of Silicone Spray lubricant to EVERY seal on the roof and car (hood, doors, and trunk). I usually do it the day before I plan on washing it, since the washing will remove any inadvertant overspray. I'll also hand-wipe the seals in-between liberal applications with the same spray on a cloth to remove dirt and grime that may have been picked up.
