Mine creaks over speed bumps and now I know how to fix it! Though Im not sure I want to, it also creaks a bit when driving like a hooligan and the turbos are spooled at low'ish speeds, makes me feel like:



Without having to end up like:

how could they say there's nothing they can do, BMW sells rubber dressing specifically for the creaking problem. at 40k aren't you still under warranty? that would piss me off. but anyway if you think they're right about the seals and don't feel like fighting with them either get the dealer stuff or some Gummi Pflege and slick up the door seals.

Gummi-Pflege.

I bought a stick of this and it works great for seal lube. Just be sure to open the bottle and pull off the anti-leak packaging seal otherwise the liquid won't come through. Learned that the hard way.

I already contacted BMW NA. Just waiting for their response. I'm not to hopeful though. I'll probably just end up buying the stuff you mentioned and fix it myself.

On a side note, my car was worked on yesterday. They diagnosed the car for having the SES light come on. I called to see what the part was and he told me that "IT WAS THE THING THAT'S LIKE THE INTAKE MANIFOLD THAT SUCKS IN AIR" Gotta love the service advisors in my area. They are the best I'll have to see what they replaced when I see the paperwork today.


I also asked them to replace my wind shield wipers since the rain will be coming soon. He told me that it hasn't been a year yet since they last replaced them Really? It's been 11 months and I won't be needing an oil change for another 10,000 miles. So why would I bother to bring my car in a month to get the wiper inserts replaced Such BS

Someone please help me!

I am sick and tired of dealing with these idiotic service advisors! If you are in the So Cal area and know of a good service advisor that is actually knowledgeable, please let me know. I have dealt with so many and most of the time is seems that I know more than they do.

There is a website called www.dealerrater.com. Give it a try. We don't want you to "go postal" on us. Apologies in advance if you happen to work for USPS.

When I pull out of my long, steep driveway I hear lots of creaks and groans from the car. Interior sounds. Maybe door seal lube will help?

Exiting the garage stall where my 335d sleeps includes some frame twisting maneuvers.

Once driving more than 20 mph any sounds are drowned out by tire noise.

It is only an issue when nearly at a dead stop and driving over un-level pavement.

I was definitely surprised to hear these noises. I don't hear anything similar in my Porsche. Engine noise would drown them out. I suppose.

The lube stick is Carbaflo KSP 105 and this stuff is amazing and expensive. I think I first read about it on this site.

I went online to find the code so I could go and get the ordering information. My dealership said they don't sell Carbaflo, so I asked him to go online and cut/paste the order number into their products list and voila, indeed they do sell it.

Works wonders on the door seals and on any two surfaces that rub and create noise. I usually apply once a year just to be safe.
