Window creaking?

Hi all, my driver's side window creaks every time I go over any kind of bump. It happens when the window is closed. I'm thinking maybe the window is somehow misaligned and not closing completely. Has anyone had this before?

Thanks - I did try that but it didn't fix the issue, unfortunately. I'll have the shop check it out and report back.

it would be better to address the underlying cause like you suggested; but if you want to just make the noise go away, you could try spraying silicone spray lubricant around the edges of the window

If you have a hardtop, you may have some looseness in your door hinges so that your window will rub against the upper seal above the door. Spray silicone will help solve this problem.

Thanks to both of you. I took it to the dealer and they ended up spraying it and it seems to have solved the issue.

As an update, the noise returned shortly after the service. I think it might actually be an issue with the side curtain airbag area.
