    Default 2008 City - Noisy Interior - How to Fix?

    Hi,
    I have city 2008 model, its interior is very noisy, and with time its becoming more noisy. Dashboard, windows, door locks etc are giving strange noises. it is really very irritating and annoying, can anyone tell me good dentor/mechanic who can work only on NOISES. No mechanic/dentor takes interest in such kind of work.
    I am living in pindi so let me know if you know any guy working on such issue!
    Thx!

    Are your shock absorbers working fine?

    because its alot of effort
    and people would not pay accordingly
    so denters avoid this troublesome work

    suggest give the car for fix in turns.let him work on doors first. separately for the dash
    Life is short and very unpredictable just like a Quarter mile .....

    Troubleshoot things one by one. Starting with the windows and proceeding forward. I can only presume that it is either the rubber material between plastics parts, loose nuts/bolts or non greased metallic parts producing troublesome sound.

    firstly start with the door rubber seals - clean them first and apply some talcum powder on them. If you want to lubricate the door latches, do not use grease. A mix of parrafin and beeswax is ideal for this job.

    For plastic parts rubbing together and rattling isolate the source, remedy it with either velvet strips or lubricant etc (same wax - no oils)

    In addition to what zulfiqar mentioned, get your hands on a factory service manual (Haynes if all else fails). Gut the car out completely. Add rubber washers to the plastic-metal contact areas. You will also notice many other issues underneath all the decoration along with.

    Are you talking about rattles or road noise?

    In case of road noise, have your alignment and camber checked to start with. Check your tires, tires with small square-ish tread are usually more silent.

    If all that is well, your second step can be sound deadening. Use a dynamat sheet. You can start with the floor, especially under the gear console. Later you can move to the doors.

    As for rattling, DIY is your best bet. No denter/Painter will drive the car with your ear and identify all squeaks and rattles the way you do.

    Does the parrafin/beeswax come under any brandname and what type of shops are likely to carry it ?

    Thank you everyone for replying and suggesting.
    I was away so could not reply.
    Anyways, my car shock absorbers and suspension is completely fine, i observed closely what wrong is happening and i have came to the conclusion. My car parking place. When i park my car in garage, the slope twists my car every-time. First right front tyre is on slope then 2nd front left, then back right and finaly back left tyre. this actually produces pressure on door locks and dashboard. Its better to fix my parking slope then my car
    Thx everybody , i ll definitely go for wax n dashboard stuff!
