The first time I took it in, they applied some conditioner/grease/lubricant into them, but helped little. A few weeks later, the cracking noise (specially when going over uneven surfaces) came back.

Its again in the dealership, any suggestions? (noise is only from the both rear doors/panels)

Garage List
A few years ago, I had a problem with my M3 Convertible. When new, and when the windows were up, with the roof on, the windows creaked/squeaked in the roof lining. We thought this was caused by the the fact that I had put a tint on the windows, and that the window fitment tolerances are so fine. Essentially, the window was now very slightly thicker than the roof lining was designed for.

I got some silicon gel from BMW (bloody expensive, but I can't recall the cost right now). Anyway, I applied a small amount along the entire top edge of the glass - squeaks gone. The silicon gel is colourless, and I just had to be careful to wipe any excess off the glass (in an upward motion on both sides of the glass).

The squeaks returned a few weeks later and I repeated the process. Now the squeaks were gone for good!

I kept that car for several years and never had the squeaks return.

I had a similar problem with my 320D and after a lot of frustrating prodding and pushing I found the cause was the lower part of the door trim where it meets the inside of the storage bin. I pushed some foam in between and now the noise has stopped in both front doors.

i had the annoying noise when the windows are up, but not when down. I can tolerate on the smooth road surface, once bumpy, the annoying noise is back, my car is shortly due for 15000 km service and will ask the technician to look into it.

Apparently they now apply some sort of a felt trim to the creaky areas to prevent it from coming back. It's just fantastic to know that BMW are always on the cusp of cutting edge technology. Nothing like enhancing the overall experience and sensation of quality with a little felt.

In all seriousness, I don't care how they get rid of the noise, but it bloody better be gone now. I'll be finding out this week once I collect my car from it's week long excursion to the service department for several other warranty issues.
