  1. I have a new 2007 Corolla. Since the day I bought it, the rear (very back window) makes a creaking, rattling, ticking sound. Frustratingly, the noise is intermittent. Sometimes it happens and goes on for hours, othertimes under identical conditions it does nothing. I've had it to the dealer 5 times and they've removed all the plastic in the rear and reinstalled it, and most recently removed and reinstalled the entire window. But the noise persists. It sounds like it is coming from where the window meets the frame top left or top center. Often the noise begins when the car goes over a small bump while turning. Does anybody have any insight? I know it's a small stupid problem, but the noise is very annoying and I'm getting sick of taking the car back to the dealer. Thanks in advance!
  2. I have had a 2007 Corolla for 6 weeks. It's been back 4 times due to a crooked steering wheel, and a rattle in the back window that still hasn't been solved. Now I also have a rattle in the front dash, rear right window, and headliner above the driver's window.
  3. Thanks for the reply. I hope you're right about the rotors. They just look like heck, and it's a brand new car! About the creaking window: I mean the very back window (with the defroster). If I go over a rough road it sounds like someone's rocking back and forth in an antique rocking chair in the back seat. I've had a friend ride back there, and he says the noise comes from where the window meets the frame at the top centre. It seems to be worse in very cold weather (I'm in Ontario, near where the Corollas are built). I think I'd rather have your window problem: if you have an annoying backseat driver you can simply move your rear windows up and down for revenge!
  4. I've had my new 2007 Corolla for 3 weeks now. I've taken it back 3 times because of a loud intermittent squeak in the back window. They told me they put a "spacer" around the window but it still squeaks and the dealer is impatient. What should I do? I have the nice aluminum wheels and today I noticed (after only having the car 3 weeks) that the rotors on both front wheels are badly rusted. Is this normal? What can I do to stop the rust? Thanks!
