Noises from rear plastic panels - Interior roof trim

Hey all. I posted this some time back. Eliminating interior rattles, noises, etc.. Sorry to create a new thread about the same issue but I was looking for some specific advice now. I had previously replaced the rear deck and tried to cover it in another material as I had seen others do the same. Well, long story short I completely bastardized that. So today I installed a new one from Majestic. I left the plastic panels that cover the C-pillars off. The noise (somewhat of a squeak) has been greatly reduced. Although the interior roof trim that juts to the back of the car and lies underneath the panels that were left off for now also contribute to the noise. My question is where is a good place to purchase some closed cell foam? And also where is the best placement of the foam on the plastic covers? It doesn't look like I have much room for placement of the foam. Also, all the spring clips on the panels look fine and the roof trim sits tight with the gray headliner. Here are a few pics to show what I am talking about and also a website (gaska.com) with a link to show what I have come up with so far. Sorry to be so longwinded but I am just sick of this F*CKING noise. http://www.gaska.com/new_pdfs/GHB4026WH.pdf

Re: Noises from rear plastic panels - Interior roof trim

I have thought of dynomat. But given the tight areas (1 millimeter or less) where the two pieces meet and the irregular surface on the panel I really don't know how well it would adhere to the panel.

Re: Noises from rear plastic panels - Interior roof trim

you don't need foam or anything - if you hear squeaking from the top corner panels than they are not on right...


If everything is installed right - the only "squeaking" you would potentially hear is the 3rd brakelight or seatbelts.

Re: Noises from rear plastic panels - Interior roof trim

The 3rd brake light has been eliminated and a SH Deck was installed. The interior roof trim is definitely part of the problem. The reason that I am sure of that is that while driving over bumps in the road if gentle pressure is applied to the roof trim the noise is completely gone. But the rear panels that the seatbelts come through are also a factor. As I said in the initial post "I left the plastic panels that cover the C-pillars off. The noise (somewhat of a squeak) has been greatly reduced." I will also reiterate that all the metal clips on the covers look perfect and before they were taken off they most definitely were installed correctly. Trust me, I checked them more times than I can count. Not trying to be a smart*ss or nothing, just saying. They were tight and flush.
