Default Back window hatch glass wonít stop squeaking!

2002 4 dr* the back hatch glass refuses to stop squeaking while Iím driving and itís driving me nuts. For now itís gotten so annoying that I put the truck in neutral and pop the hatch open while Iím driving and hit the dome light override. Iím getting to the point of where Iím going to go get thick one sided foam tape to put around the edge of the glass to stop it but I would prefer a more stock look than that cob job, is there any way to tighten the latch since I assume thatís why itís not closing tight enough to avoid that squeak?

Look at the hinges and lubricate them. When I've done that and then move the pins of the hinges so that the heads of the pins are at the end of the hinge, it seems to go away. Doing this might at least lead you to an easier solution.

Good luck
