    Guys.....no big deal here...but thought I would run this by on you all before maybe a dealer run.
    On opening the driver's door to full extension there is a chirp sound.Sounds like a bird? Can not really tell if it inside the door or not....any ideas? I have lube the hinges to not avail....

    Thanks :)

    Use some electrical cleaner to remove all lubes then use a better lube than the one you did use.

    A great non bearing lube is LPS #3. Its not cheap but its the best you can buy. This is the best lube I have found for hinges, winch cables and chains. And it is absolutely the very best for locks. Like truck shell tops, master locks. Just spray into key slot and it will never freeze or rust up again. Goes on runny and drys waxyish.

    I am having the same issue with my 14 sport. I know this is an older post but has anyone confirmed a solution to this problem? It is only the drivers side door when opened to its fullest that you hear an annoying "chirp". I have tried lithium grease, noise is still there. Any help would be great.

    Thanks

    Noise found ! Upon further investigation the door noise mentioned in this post has nothing to do with the hinges. What I found happening is that the lower front edge of the door is catching on a piece of weather stripping that is between the front fender and door. When the door is opened a certain amount the rubber slips off and flaps back in place. That is the noise. Hope this helps some of you.
