Hey everyone,

I just put 1,000 miles on my 2011 xB and at around 800 miles I began getting this really annoying creaking all around the windshield. Its not interior parts rattling, its legit creaking, like an old rusty door on a haunted house creaking. It happens over small-mid size road bumps. Anyone else experiencing this? I'm thinking of bringing it to the dealer and complaining. It is on both driver and passenger side and sounds to be coming from the bottom corners of the windshield glass. When I stand outside and push on the glass I can not reproduce it.

I can now confirm the creak is coming from the TOP AND BOTTOM. Mostly from the top of the windshield where it meets the metal.

Add me to the list!! 2011 xB with a noise in the right hand, lower windshield, dash area. 4,500 miles. I will have the dealer look at it at the 5,000 mile oil change.

I took the xB in for the 5000 mile old change and told the servive writer about the noise. Unfortunately, the guys that change the oil are not the techs that do repairs etc. Must make an appointment with the "real" repair guys to have them check it out.

same problem on my 08, sounds like its coming when the bottom of the glass where the glass meets the left and right pillars. Creeks when I hit bumps, but for the most part it only happens when the weather is cold.

The black plastic at the bottom of the windshield (outside) that surrounds the windshield wipers SEEMS to be the culprit. When I tap on it and press on it in certain areas I can duplicate the creek sound. It seems like the plastic is chattering off the outside of the windshield. Try it out... it seems like if I took the plastic off and put some sort of foam in there, it might reduce or fix it

(the plastic that surrounds where the wipers bolt on. the whole tray that goes across the bottom of the glass)

ive driven with the cowl off and it helps with some of the noises from the dash but not all of them
Did you take it off to see it thats what was causing the creeking?

yeah it was only part of the sound. i had the metal tray underneath removed too, theres a lot of noises on these things and scion gave me the "what do you want for the price" excuse and so my response was hyundai's are the same price and dont squeak and rattle
