Interior panel squeaking

Recommended Posts

Hey guys! So after my restoration I've been getting a lot of squeaking and creaking from the rear plastic panels of my 280z. Usually its the worst when the car flexes a little (Like backing out at an angle over a driveway). The rear quarters and the rear headliner piece mostly. Has anyone found a good remedy for this? I was thinking of taking the pieces off and glueing some sort of felt or thin foam strip where they make contact.

The factory used strips of foam tape that by now has turned to dust.

I had the exact same problem after reassembling my interior. I was ready to take the panels apart and add some felt strips until someone suggested spraying lubricant in the squeaking panel joints. It worked amazingly well. It's been over 18 months since and the car is still very quiet. I used a member of the WD40 line "Specialist Dry Lube PTFE Spray" which I found at Home Depot. Simply spray into the edges where the panels meet and wipe off the excess. You'll appreciate the silence.20170718_141026.jpg
