    Guys I have had my car for over a year and i have noticed that some of the seals are starting to get a bit em "sticky" and "squeaky" etc

    I am starting to get some squeaking coming from the rubber seal around the windows as I drive along. If I slightly drop the window the noise disappears so I'm guessing it's the seals!! I know this has just started but is getting slightly worse. I have also noticed that the rear convertible cover when opening seems to stick, like the rubber seal needs lubricating.

    So any suggestions as what to use that wont leave a horrible mess on the window. I don't want cheap silicon sprays which is fine until it rains and smears all over the window.

    So any suggestions as to products and where to get them?
    Thanks

    You can use either a silicone spray, or a rubber treatment. I use AutoGlym bumper and exterior rubber/plastic restorer, the one with the green label. Works a treat & stops mine squeaking.

    I had the same problem on my compact (creaking / squeky window seals and the noise stopped when I dropped the window slightly).

    Gummi pflege sorted it out - its what the dealers used to use and so do a lot of people with Z3's which were prone to creaking seals.
