    Default My doors make a creaking sound when i hit a bump

    My doors make a creaking sound when i hit a bump, like they are slightly moving. it doesnt seem to come from the interior panels, but the doors themselves. The car didnt have any major collisions. Is it possible they need to be tighten or something like that?

    Take the interior panel off and check inside. I was getting a slight creaking sound when the window went up The lube in the tracks was like a hardened plastic. Cleaned the tracks and installed new sliders and lube. Silent now.

    Check your door insulation, it could possible make noise if the door is moving. Check for wear on the paint where the insulation meets, should give you an idea if it's moving around.
