On bumpy roads at low speeds the rear hatch squeaks. Drives me crazy.

We tried silicone lube on the entire rubber door weatherstrip, silicone greased the hard rubber contact points and checked the fit of the stowage cover, the stowage tray and the hold down parts for the spare - all to no avail.

All three segments of the back seat were laid down and back up and the squeak remained. It appears to emanate from the very rear and the hatch seems to be the source.

Anyone know the cure?

The cure? I could make the squeak go away by removing both hearing aids.

Looks like you are not alone (see message #79)...

Are the strikers adjustable enough to cinch the hatch down tighter on the seals?

Thanks lad.

Lucky solution!

Simply put a dab of grease between the latch "hook" and "striker plate" at the direct contact point and - voila !

So easy. So simple. So hard to admit I was missing such an obvious solution :)

Repeat after me: duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuh!
