Solved - Squeaky Rear Window Problem

I seriously thought I was going to [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] lose it [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] if I had to go another day with the squeaks, especially since they have progressively gotten worse. I found that using a hot-glue gun to build up the window striker & pin and to repair any damage to the weatherstrip eliminated the noise completely! Some good things about using hot glue is its ease of application and removal, you can build it up quicker and easier than using electrical tape, etc., and so far it seems to withstand the abuse of being slammed into the latch. I hope your squeaks rest in peace also! [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: Solved - Squeaky Rear Window Problem

My 87 does that too[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/mad.gif[/img] I just wrap electrical tape around the pin part on the window side. But it only last 5 or 6 closings before its all ripped up[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/mad.gif[/img]
But I think my weather seal is too smashed and not providing any pressure pushing back on the glass.
I'll try the hot-glue gun. it seems like it would break off quickly but what the hey , its worth a shot[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
Does anyone else have any solution for these????

Re: Solved - Squeaky Rear Window Problem

Thank you so much! I have been dealer with this problem in my 86 for as long as I can remember. After a while I just got used to the squeak, but every time some rode in it they would comment on the squeak. Now i can fix it. Thank you!

Re: Solved - Squeaky Rear Window Problem

I got tired of my squeak also, so I just stuffed a surgical glove into the opening in the tailgate, and the squeak hasn't come back. I know it sound cheezy, but it a pinch, its a quick fix. The same glove lasted for 6 months.( do they have 12V hot glue guns for on the trail fixes, just kidding)
