I have been in my Meridian for 13 months now. Still trying to get the squeak and rattles out of it. The one I am trying to fix now is the overhead cabinet foward of driver and slightly left(front left corner). Sound like wood against wood???
A prior squeak that I fix that may help someone else was at drivers left. Where the seatbelt extends up though the cabinets the plastic shroud was not centered in the cutout. A piece of wood(luan) was rubbing the shroud.
Cheers BOB

I had a squeak ...wood against wood ...at that same spot. The front cabinet above the driver was "conflicting" with the wood trim above the driver side window. About the time I noticed where the squeak was, I also noticed the cabinet was pulling loose from the center TV cabinet. My dealer had to re-secure the entire cabinet over the driver!! Hopefully you don't have all that problem, but if you have the wood trim over the side window, look closely where that wood meets the cabinet for any evidence of rubbing. I get additional noise from inside the cabinet ...I think it is crazy to have cabinet "floors" lying loose in something that rocks and rolls down the highway, but I wouldn't call those noises "squeaks"...

There's an easy fix for this. I had the same problem, which drove me NUTS. Take a wide blade putty knife and coat both sides with cooking oil. Slide the knife INTO the gap / crack and slide it up & down, especially where the cabinets are rubbing. This will quiet the area - no creaks at all

Thanks for the input. Found one of white trim panels at the back of the cabinet rubing against the metal self. Also put a piece of felt between the plastic window trim. Heading out for a week tomorrow-----The road will let me know
Cheers Bob
