same here, and its annoying. even opening the door can cause the creaking from the window. sad sad for a new X.
Sounds like what I finally figured out on mine, but ive been trying with silicone to seal the metal off from the weathershrip. Are you talking about the thick rubber that is easily pulled from the car frame? (runs from the kickpannel all the way around the car frame and back down to the latch area?) Or the window trim that the window slides in and out of that is attached to the door frame itself?Allahades said:My driver's side window rattled when partially rolled down from the day I bought it (didn't think to check that during the test drive...doh!)
First my dealer replaced the rubber molding around the window, but that didn't help. Next they replaced the window regulator, and while that didn't fix the rattling, it got rid of the creaking the window made when rolling up or down (If your window creaks, make them replace and lube the regulator).
I ended up buying some thin weatherstripping and stuffing it into the space between the metal doorframe and the rubber molding. I had to experiment a bit-- I tried a thicker weatherstripping at first, but on hot days it expanded and I could hear the window motor straining. Didn't want that, so I went with a thinner weatherstripping and now the rattling is only noticeable on very rough dirt roads.
It was frustrating to have to come up with a home-brew solution to a problem like this on a brand new vehicle, but the weatherstripping did finally work for me. Before that it was driving me crazy!
