Default 2012 Impreza hatch rattle/creak solution

Hi,

Have a 4 month old 2012 Impreza that started developing creaks and rattles from the hatch area.

To save some of you the time and trouble on where it is coming from, i will tell you how to solve your problem w the hatch and other rubberised components.

The trick is buying some silicon grease. The rubberised parts WILL dry and need to be lubed, but you need to use a grease that will preserve the rubber -- make it supple again. Pick up $3 faucet SILICON GREASE from Home depot.

Apply it to the spots circled on the pics attached to this post.

Obviously, if you find other parts of your car creaking -- such as the dash or piller, locate it and apply the silicon grease to the rubber/plastic component.
