BUMP -- has anyone figured this out? It's literally driven me to where I'm fixing to trade an otherwise perfectly good car. AFAIK my car HAS had the door latch recall; no improvement. I HAVE tried silicone spray, no lasting improvement. I have no idea what dude is talking about regarding pulling fuzzy stuff down from inside the window channel, so haven't tried that and hence no improvement. I HAVE had my transmission and windshield both replaced (not for this reason), no improvement.
Unless Ford can tell me how to fix this, I'm going to assume it's happening because the car has poor torsional rigidity and is twisting itself apart with every creaky corner or creaky driveway curb cut. And that's going to make me think trading it is a good idea. And then I'll feel like sucker of the year for buying a vehicle with such low resale value---value that drops another thousand bucks once the used car manager drives it around the block and hears it creaking like a pirate ship.
