05 G55 rear door squeak problem. please help

9445 Views 10 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  sakhalin76

just got my long dreamed of 2005 G55 GE with only 25k miles on. Condition is very close to exceptional in and out.. BUT, when driving at low speeds especially while turning, can hear the definite squeaking sound coming from the rear door.

Greased everything - did not help

was playing with the Door Strikers position alignment, to the point when the door would barely close (way too tight).. - whould help for a couple of days, then the problem comes back.. :crybaby2:

Please help, maybe it;s time to change Door Strikers? or there is some other ideas?

It might possibly be the plastic trim panels. I had to take all the plastic off and use black felt strips and glue them where the plastic met each other, and where it contacted places on the rear door. The main culprit is the heavy extra spare wheel that places alot of load on the door and causes it to vibrate. Your best bet is to get someone to drive the truck, while you sit in the back and and isolate the noise by pressing against the plastic pieces until you find a general area where its coming from. Its common on all the G wagens.
