Annoying Car Window squeak

So I've had my Sorento LX 2016, for about three months now, here in the Dominican Republic that is the only trim offered as of now, I really like it but there is just an annoying sound coming from the outer crome border portion of the passenger and driver car window and this only happens when the windows are fully up, for example whenever I go over a speed bumps or whenever the vehicle is moved like from side to side like it happens going down in a parking ramp or something like that, I just get this annoying squeak from the doors like when closing a door with rusted hinges, I'm pretty sure it comes from that chrome portion because if I get off the car and push the windows, the chrome piece moves making that sound, I've tried putting W-40 oil on the little gaps but it only kind works temporarily, I would try to get pictures of the borders of my door to see if anyone can notice something off.


If anyone has suggestions or fixes for this I would really appreciate since the warranty service here sucks so I'd like to fix this by myself.

Haven't had that problem. I would at least try to get it addressed by the dealer. I had a CX5 previous to this car and it had more rattles than a baby carriage. They can be annoying and hard to fix sometimes. If 2 parts are rubbing together and making a noise then you can isolate them from each other or stop them from rubbing together in the first place. Pictures would help!

Here are the pictures of the chrome border piece of my door, when I push it it makes the same annoying sound as I'm driving.

If it easy to duplicate the problem I would head to the dealer and ask them to fix it. It could be an alignment problem with the door or door latch. You shouldn't put WD 40 on those rubber door gaskets. A silicone spray is what is generally recommended to keep them pliable and provide some lubrication. In our cold climates in North America it also helps to prevent freezing of the gasket to the door.
