2006 VUE 2.2L
Default Re: 04 Vue is making weird noises that I can't figure out

I can't help with the first two items...

I can almost guarantee the third noise is the lift gate plastic covering just from the cricket explanation. I've tried all the posted fixes and am sure its the liftgate plastic covering rubbing on the metal liftgate. The only thing I haven't tried is removing it completely to see if it goes away. I've tried greasing the connection points, greasing the rubber gasket, duct tape padding the joints, duct tapping the areas in question, pulling and reseating.... Still have the crickets in my Vue.

I live in peace and harmony with them now. They remind me of camping. They remind me of better times... They remind me I am driving a car with its own quirks that I love. If you find a solution, please do not tell me said solution. I have learned to miss the crickets when I drive any other car...

Sorry none of the above helps you on your quest for silence!
