Rear window wind deflector creaking

Anyone know how to stop expansion creaking from the rear window wind deflector? It happens when going from shade (eg garage) to sunshine (ie driving). The dealer said there is no fix yet for it.

I just sprayed silicone into the space between the deflector and the roof. It has been
quiet for over a month.

Re: Rear window wind deflector creaking

I had sprayed underneath by the glass but now I have also sprayed on top where the two pieces meet. Hopefully it will stop the creaking. What is dumb is that my 2011 had no trouble but Jeep in its drive to be cheap redesigned for 2014. I do miss the flipper window. I doubt I will buy another Chrysler product after enduring multiple recalls, unrepairable defects and inadequate Uconnect software. But what was I thinking $55k would buy...
