You're welcome. It took me a couple of weeks to figure out what the squeak was. The nice part is that in the future the fix is quick, simple, and CHEAP!!

Mine has lasted for over a year now.

Just a Hunter I've not delt with this exact problem, but here was my fix for something similar.

Purchase a torx set such as the one I posted below
https://www.harborfreight.com/7-pc-m...set-97469.html

Choose a drill bit which is just under the same size as one of your torx bits.

Drill into the screw head ever so slightly to allow the torx bit to be inserted with force.
Attempt to remove screw,
If slippage take place, hold your torx bit at an angle to bind it against the screw and try again.

This should either remove your screw, or thoroughly mess things up.

Last attempt would be to progressively drill out the head of the screw, remove the panel and then remove the screw afterwards.

Might just take it into the dealer and have them replace the screw.

RetroFit My squeaks are usually the result of one of the top clips coming loose. When they break free it is metal on metal. Drives me nuts. That seems to be one of the side affects of replacing the shocks with tougher aftermarket ones. I sometimes end up shutting it a little harder than necessary and that probably pops it loose.

muminiasty yes, I also get that squeaky noise in the back I always have to pop it back in for it to stop. Will take the panel off as well and fix it.
