Squeaky Door

I cannot stop squeaking from the entrance door on the 2016 FR3 28 DS. Hi spray the weather strip with WD-40 and that does not help. Any suggestions on how to stop the squeaking at highway speed?
Thanks,
Bob

is it the solid white plastic piece that slides open and closed on your screen door? Although that is more of a rattle noise.

We had the same problem with our Forester. Opening the rear ceiling vent helps a lot. I guess it equalizes the pressure in the cabin.

Fixed, I sealed the door with foam weatherstripping from Home Depot. No more whistles or chirps.

Simple 1" foam door sealant. I had to treatment around the joints so the door would shut appropriately. I did leave some around the end. Basically, put the foam up on the front side of the door by the hinges close the door and see where the pressure points are in trim it back. Leave some behind where there's no pressure. So the air does not get through. It only goes around the he inside of the door and a little bit on the top of the door. It would not go all the way around because the door could not shut. I hope this helps. Bob
