Ticking, Creaking, Popping, or Rattling From Front Door Acura TL 2004–2008 – Engine

Download Some vehicles can make an annoying ticking, creaking, popping, or rattling from the front door when you’re driving with the window all the way up. The noise goes away, though, when you lower the window just a bit. This noise comes from a stick/slip action of the door weatherstrip. A thin coat of silicone grease will get rid of that noise, but after a few months . . . it just comes back. To get rid of that noise for good, here’s what you need to do: 1. Use isopropyl alcohol to clean the surface under the front door weatherstrip. 2. Cut a 22-inch length of 1/4-inch Squeak Reduction Tape (P/N 70200-ALL-999). 3. Lift up the weatherstrip at the upper corner of the door, and apply half the tape across the top of the door surface, pressing firmly with your fingers to ensure a good bond. Then apply the other half of the tape down the back of the door surface just the same way. When you’re done, press down on the tape where it wraps around the corner (you want a nice, smooth contour with no edges sticking up).
