Try the penetrating oil in the same area... pull the foam, soak down the sheet metal area & repl. the foam.. nothing to lose but $4.00 My 2 front doors had noise when closing like the door skin was flexing when shut. Took the car to the dealer and took the serv. mgr. by the hand outside and showed him. He ordered a latch assy. which didn't fix it. The noise went away when holding your hand on the sheet metal. Ended up bring the car there 3 times!!! The last visit they finally got it right. Went shopping and couldn't back in the driver's door, had to crawl over the passenger's seat. Went back to the losers and they had it another 2 hours to break in by removing the interior trim panel by ripping it off with the door shut. They fixed the lock assy. (prob. actuator arm fell off). Made them order a new interior panel and had another return visit. NO MORE Nissan's!!!!!!
I haver another 8 or 10 stories just as scary. How they stay in business I'll never know.

Maybe foam was a bad choice to use... the interior trim on the "A" pillar may have to be removed to squirt the penetrating oil to the w/s area. It probably wouldn't hurt to squirt some also on the exterior area... maybe the wiper trim panel may have to be removed. The idea to soak the area as much as possible. Keep a clean rag nearby the dash to catch the overspray. My noise was in the front doors when they were closed.

I have a 2011 Murano LE with just over 4K miles on it. Recently, I began noticing the squeaking/clicking noise you mention coming from the bottom of the windshield. After reading these posts, I agree with the post that the squeak is coming from the black plastic molding at the bottom of the windshield (the one with the washer jets). I pushed down on the plastic in the rain valley (using only my finger tips) and I was able to duplicate the squeaking noise. I continued to push down on it the full length of the molding from each corner of the windshield toward the middle. The noise was more pronounced in the middle.
After pushing it down several times, the noise stopped. I'm guessing that road grime and grit somehow works its way between the plastic and the windshield glass and vibration causes the squeaking sound. Mine started after a couple of extended trips on the interstate. Cold weather might also have an impact as the plastic becomes more brittle.
I would be careful and not be too aggressive on trying my "pushing down" method since the plastic is fairly flimsy and could crack given enough stress. I pushed down with my finger tips and only pushed it down about a quarter of an inch and that was enough to duplicate the sound. I think the more times you push down on it, the grit and grime gets dislodged thus the cause of the squeak is eliminated. Hope this helps. So far, the noise hasn't reappeared after two days of driving. It probably will come back, but if my theory is correct, it only takes a couple of minutes to take care of it.

Your car is under warranty - why wouldn't let the dealer look at it???

For the reason I gave. I fixed it, why would I want to risk them screwing something else up.

bought a 2009 Murano about 6 months ago. not a good purchase. the battery keeps loosing its charge. had it to the dealer 3 or 4 times. they put a nissan battery in it. did not help. next they determined it was the xm radio. still did not cure the problem and it cost $2500 for a new radio. just last nite, i get in the car and try to start it. no luck. battery dead again. any ideas on what going on to cause the battery to drain?

Do you have any aftermarket equipment installed on the car? How long does it take for the battery to drain - hours/days/weeks?
I would take it to a shop that specializes in electrical repairs and have them diagnose each fused circuit with an ammeter with the car turned off.

Being an X mechanic for 17 years locating a draw is very simple. First of all I'd return the battery & the radio and get a FULL discount. Their ignorance shouldn't shouldn't have to be paid by your wallet!!!! For a battery to die overnight it would take something other than a radio to pull that much current I would think. Why didn't they pull the fuse overnight and see what the result would be the next day?
In order to locate the draw they need to remove one of the battery cables. Next with a volt meter or even a mechanic's test light connect that between the battery post & the cable. The test light will illuminate when the current flows thru it. They need to start pulling fuses one at a time until the lite shuts off... it's that simple. Remember if the door is left open the lite will stay on of course from the courtesy lites being on. All it is is process of elimination. In the old days I have even seen voltage regulators go bad... today they are internal to the alternators, so they will have to disconnect that too. Your dealer sounds like mine in NJ - total morons!!! No warranty????

Still dealing with the dealership with no luck in finding the problem. Just last nite I get into the Murano and it will not start. I was just putting the charger down to do a recharge on the battery and all of a sudden the lights (headlights, park lights and turn signal lights) start blinking off and on. I wonder if the problem is the security system or the computer. any ideas? The car can work find for days. Then all of a sudden it will not start.
