Default Squeak in rear door latch

This may be already on the forum somewhere.An annoying squeak has started up in the back door area.Sounds like steel on steel so presuming it is the latch.Had this problem previous in Landcruisers & Prado & it grates on the nerves a bit.It is a squeak not rattle.A spray on the latch area kills it of for about a week .Any help appreciated

It's normally the hard rubber block on the door against the C shaped keeper on the "door jam". There has been at least one detailed thread on this. I tried putting softer rubber on the hared block with not much success. Others have reported this working.

My fix was to use some spray contact adhesive and glue a strip of marine carpet to the rubber block. While not totally permanent, it does work, but after about 6 months it needs to redone.

Re-aligning the rubber block seems to keep it at bay.
Until you hit corrugations and the weight of the spare tyre forces it to move again!

Wish there was a cheaper option than OL's $3k rear wheel carrier.

Default My solution to the squeaky door

Hello everyone,

I have had the same problem with my car. Initially I thought it was the locating block so I tried some silicone spray, then some soap (I'm Italian so we make our own) which worked great for 2 months and then the squeaking returned.

I caught up with a fellow forumite to check out his mods and whilst looking at his rear drawers he mentioned that I didn't have a damper on the door. I eventually got around to getting one (mb270607) for a whole $3 and thought I'd replace the locating block because it was worn (MB669479).

The block was out of stock so I just picked up the damper for the time being and it has completely solved my problem. To fit I used a small flathead screwdriver and prodded it in (above the locking mechanism in photo)

Let me know if this solves your problem - It looks like the damper can easily get knocked off by brushing past it.

Jim

Ahhhh I will have to go see if I have one.
Repositioning the block worked for awhile but it has come back. Also to note that the trim around the brake light etc can be the cause too. A member on here fitted rubber C trim around the edges and stopped the noise he was having.

Default Damper

What a great post, I went and had a look after reading it-no damper ,just a hole.
My door bangs and thumps,loss of the damper would not help.
Great Forum this.
Regards
