Body flex

Can anyone else hear the windows creak against their seals when fully up if you turn a corner or go over a hump?

Imagine the car flexing slightly as you do, leading to a variation in the contact that the top of the glass has with the doors.

I think that's what I can hear.

It's beginning to annoy me.

Just done 600+ miles on motorway, a roads and the B roads of Herefordshire (roughest in The UK I bet) and not a peep from the rear windows.

Bit of dash creak when i drive up the ridiculously designed angled incline into the works car park, but nothing untowards otherwise.

i get it occasionally. My old A4 was worse though and the cure was to spray some clear silicon spray on the seals and it would go away for a few months. On the A4 it was the vertical seal that ran between the front and rear doors
