The Z4 is developing a lot of creaks and squeaks that seem to be coming from the junction of the top and body behind the seats. I expect that a dry lubricant would take care of the problem, but don't know if that's so, or what to use. All suggestions welcome! Happy Holidays!!
Hi from Glendale, CA

I had a 2011 35i M-Sport and now have a 2013 35is and never any squeaks or creaks or rattles...except if the passenger seat is all the way back and touching the bulkhead. Try making sure the seats are at least 1/2" from touching the rear bulkhead and if that doesn't work take the car to be's designed not to make unwanted noises, it's not a Corvette.
