      Default Creaky window seals

      I know this has been talked about before but my drivers side and to be honest passenger side window seal is creaking like mad and driving me nuts ! Tried all sorts of spray on it to try and cure it! Warranty runs out next month thought I would mention to them as apparently creaks are not covered but surely if its that bad they should do something about it?! (I know this is Renault we are taking about)

      Anyone any ideas would be much appreciated !!?

      I'm so glad this isn't just me! My 265 is only on 1800 miles (about 5 weeks old) and my driver side creaks like mad.

      I discovered droppping the window a bit stops it, so figured it was the window seal causing the noise, but this obviously isn't a solution.

      Watching this thread with baited breath.

      i used to spray some quick detailer on the seals and it stopped them creaking for a while.

      Whereabouts did you spray it, just on the rubber seal the window goes into?

      Wind the window down and spray wherever the glass touches the seals, worked for me.

      I'm going to try 1z Gummi Pflege as it's a fraction of the cost of Swissvax and is a rubber door seal conditioner/restorer too.

      is it definitely coming from the window seals ?
      I remember hunting for a noise on the R26 which I thought was a door panel and it ended up being the door locks.
