Default Creaking door panel..

Hey guys I just bought my truck last week a 2011 dodge ram 1500 sport doesnt even have 500 miles on it and I have this really annoying creaking sound coming from the passenger side door panel. It sounds like a old rocking chair going back and forth. Im not sure of what it could be and I cant get to the dealer until next week anyone have any ideas of what it could be?

Hello,

Not sure if it is the door panel but I am having the same problem. 2011 Sport R/T and I have less than 50 miles on my truck. It originally sounded like it was coming from the seat but it still does it after removing the seat. After further looking, in my opinion it seems to be coming form under the truck instead of in the cab but sometimes these things can resinate to a different area than where you hear it from. It does drive you crazy though. Hopefully some one else is having the same problem and chime in.

There is a recall on 2011's, something about the door catches and locks. I know its for the passenger side and rear passenger side doors. Your problem may be something different though.

I received the "official" recall notice from Chrysler earlier this week. It states the sound is described as "a racheting noise". If this can be described as that, I would definitely have it checked.

Normally it's the edge of the door panel rubbing on the metal behind it. If you can localize it, then put some thin clear tape behind it the squeek should cease. Or, just create some space between the metal and plastic.

I have had to chase these things down before and sometimes it's some flashing from the mfgring process that hasn't been trimmed properly.

Sometimes I have to resort to pulling the panel to find the problem.

These things are a PITA!!!

Dealership thinks that my problem was a bolt from the exhaust system in a hard to reach area rubbing on metal . They have adjusted and think they have fixed.
