Trim Squeeking

My interior trim is so anoying and loud and squeeks whenever it is touched. How do you fix this. I saw a how to somethere putting rubber or something on the clips.

Anyone know what im talking about

I think I may turn my music down the next time I drive somewhere, just to see if I have "the squeaks"...

Don't do that.. especially if you're one of those people who likes their car perfect. Trust me.

On my first Cobalt I had some PDR done on my driver side door. They took the panel off to get to it, and every time I rested my leg on that door, it was the worst noise ever. Def gonna keep this in mind when I start popping panels off the new one.

^^ As far as I can tell, it's like silly putty in texture.. not cloth or a liquid. I would think a hardware store would have something that would work.

They seem to have kind of put a lot on those clips, then. I'm not sure how that'll clip back in, but this stuff's cheap so its worth a shot.
