Driver door creaking

My driver side door is creaking sounds like the molding is breaking loose over and over again(this is the best way i can describe it). It is occurring right next to my left ear. Its really irritating. I have already taken it to the dealership and had them replace the window molding and tighten the window motor. I feel like im starting to lose my mind. Has anyone else had this problem?

PS: its a 2013 double cab 4x4

Creaking when it's closed? When you're driving?

Me to

I've had this problem since day one, two dealers "unable to duplicate customer concern" - one lubed weatherstripping the third claims to have replaced door seals - all the way around and the window track - the piece by my ear..... Noise is still there - I know it sounds minor but it drives me fn crazy....... If anyone finds the solution, please let me know. Love the truck otherwise. It sounds like the window is loose in the frame but it's not...... If they really did replace all that, I don't even know what else to ask them to do.

Dealer replaced my window molding too. sound is still there. the 303 product seemed to work for me tho. defiantly a fucking annoying sound, i was about to rip the door off.

Mine does it too, but mostly on hot/dry days. Ive been using Meguiars Ultimate Quick wax and it lasts for 6 months before they start creaking again. I never realized how much the Tacoma cab flexes while driving.
