Just finished washing the car (end of Nov and I’m in shorts up here in the NE!) and I applied a generous amount of some tire dressing to all the rubber around the doors, and ta-da, that damn creaking is gone!
Careful what you use on your seals. Some of those dressings contain chemicals that yes, make rubber look pretty, but will over time eat away at the rubber.
I cannot recall the article that addressed this. Nor do I remember what chemical(s) exactly.
I have been using Castrol Tire dressing which is water based. But also washes away in water -- go fig.
