#1194 of 1195 09 Sonata squeak/rattle in dashboard when jolting? [peridoc]
Dec 25, 2011 (3:25 pm)
I finally fixed the squeak rattle in my 09 Hyundai Sonata Limited I4.
I only heard it coming from what appeared at first to be the dash or the windshield area during cold weather (40 degrees or cooler).
Based on what i had heard from reviewing multiple hyundai related forums and blogs I decided to try "lubricating" my windshield to see if it might stop the squeak/rattle after dealing with the dealership and trying to use other fixes failed.
I sprayed one of those clear tire shine/lubricant sprays (the ones that look silicon based) along the rubber seams in the windshield. I even lifted up the rubber seams and allowed the tire shine spray to get into the cracks.
Well, that appeared to solve the problem!
I don't know if the rubber was squeaking rubbing against the glass windshield, or if if the rubber was too hard in cold weather, but now I drive over bumps and indentation that used to cause the squeak/rattle and it isn't there!
This is a big relief for me, I considered my 09 Sonata Limited to be a poor mans luxury car (especially with it's absolutely beautiful interior) and the squeak/rattle was a huge disappointment.

I have 37,000 mi. on my sonada. In the morning when it is cold, it down shifts very hard. after it warms up it seems to be fine.I'am taking it to the dealer to get it checked out. Will let you know what i find out. This forum has been very helpful.
