Default Squeaking front doors rubber seals

Hello
I received my q30 2.0T 1.5 months ago and had some problems, most of which have been resolved by the dealer including hissing AC noise and driver seat height which would gradually go down every time after i pushed it up.

However, I have squeaking noises from the front doors which seems to come from the rubber seals and can be heard on bumps or changes in road level. I took the car twice to the dealer and they applied some lubricant which makes the sound disappear for a day or two but then it comes back.
Was wondering if anyone has had the same problem and if you were able to get it resolved?

Haven't heard of this problem until now. Is it more of a rattling sound or squeaking like two things are rubbing together?

They might be applying a lubricant that doesn't last long enough, like something too thin. I think there's some silicone lubricant that can be applied if you ask them. I think that thicker lube once sprayed on is more like a paste once sprayed on.

It's more like two things rubbing each other.
Dealer is now telling me they will get new rubber seals for front doors to change them. Not sure if I should be doing that.

Well, if they think it'll fix it, I'd wait and see. If it doesn't, I wouldn't leave the lot

If your dealership is covering the cost and they're the ones doing the installation, then it should be fine. If anything goes wrong and your dealership caused it then your warranty will cover it. Ask them to run your car through their car wash after installing the new seal, just in case there's a leak as that's always a fear of mine.

@kbachir did changing out the rubber seals work or is the rubbing sound still there?

I have been driving Q30 since Jan this year. I have not had any this kind of problems, also I have not heard anything about these problems from the dealership, only noise from the rear seats and condensation inside the lamps. I might go to my dealership and report those problems you mention.

By the way, did your dealership report these problems to Infiniti quality control?

If you have condensation inside the lamps then it may not have been sealed completely and need replacement.
