Don't do it!!

I had City Chevrolet of Charlotte fix my squeaking roof which included changing the strikers and pins. I went from a occasional squeak to a constant rattle. So disappointed and pissed.

I carried it back last week and it turned out the mechanic only changed the pins and not the strikers. I was charged for the pins and strikers. This time they replaced the strikers and the constant rattle is gone but there is still a rattle and squeak.

Lessons learned, I paid about $400 to get rid of a squeak to now having rattles and squeaks. Also, wasted many hours at the dealership that I can never get back. If I could turn back the clock, I would live with the squeak and have the money.

There's no guarantee that your car will ever be returned to you in the same or better condition. It will always take way more time than it should and costs to much money for simple fixes.

Tried 2 o-rings on the front 2 pins....didnt work.

any other suggestions? I mean, this is absurd for a 74k car that something simple like this could be missed. What about a piece of material or something that you could place in front of the holes, then when you push the pins in it would push the material into the hole and create a barrier between the pin and metal.

at this point I'll try anything
