Why Does Your Tesla Window Squeak After Rain?

Tesla Window Squeak After Rain

You’re not alone! Squeaky windows after rain are a common complaint among Tesla owners. The culprit is usually the rubber seals around the windows drying out. Here’s what you can do about it:

  • The Fix: Lubrication is Key

Most of the time, a little lubrication is all it takes to silence those squeaks. Silicone spray is a popular choice because it won’t damage the rubber seals and lasts longer than other options.

  • How to Lubricate Your Tesla Window Seals
  1. Gather your supplies: You’ll need a can of silicone spray and a clean rag.
  2. Locate the seals: Open the door and identify the black rubber seals that make contact with the window as it goes up and down.
  3. Apply the lubricant: Spray a light amount of silicone spray directly onto the seals, focusing on areas where the window makes contact.
  4. Wipe away excess: Use the rag to wipe off any excess spray that might migrate to the window itself.
  • Alternative Solutions

While silicone spray is a common solution, some Tesla owners recommend products like Gummi Pflege, which is specifically designed for rubber care.

  • When to Contact Tesla Service

If lubricating the seals doesn’t solve the problem, or the squeak seems to be coming from within the window mechanism itself, it’s best to schedule an appointment with Tesla service. There’s a possibility the window alignment might need adjustment.
