Window Channel Squeak is driving me insane....
 
I got in a little t-bone action about 4 months ago. The repair place did a bang up job, even fixed a couple scratches and gave me a little thing of paint.

There is this new squeaking sound. Basically I've narrowed this high pitch squeak that sound to whenever I hit a little bump (which we all know you feel every bump) to the window channel by process of elimination.

Door On, Window Up = Squeak
Door On, Window Down = Squeak
Door Off, Top On = Squeak (Not as bad, or I just can't hear it enough)
Door Off, Top Off = Squeak (Not as bad, or I just can't hear it enough)

What can I do? Can I just try to lube it with some WD40 or something? What's the best way to get to the root of the problem? Any help to keep my sanity would be greatly appreciated

Fold the windshield down and see if it goes away. Just wear glasses or a helmet so the cops don't get you in trouble.

Check anywhere you have rubber mounts, and make sure they are tight and in good shape.

Lube it with something longer lasting than WD-40 which evaporates within a few days. I'd probably use a little white lithium grease which is available in an aerosol can.
