    Don't have any squeeks myself but you can try adjusting the rubber bump stops for a tighter fit when the hatch is closed. Just don't go to far or you'll throw off your body lines and it may leak. The other thing I always do mostly to keep the gasket moist is use Black magic on the gasket. Lasts ten times as long on rubber parts than other treatments. GM also makes a special grease that some folks use on their gaskets (can't remember the name). I just use black magic and have done so for years.. Just two other things i mentioned a try and see how it works out for ya. Good luck.

    Wd-40 evaporates, and makes a mess.. If you're gonna go that route use a light lythium greese on the latch..

    Yea I was so pissed I knew if I started bitching I would just lose control so I never said a word. When we got home I gave her a good grudge F'ing
    Screwing out the bumpstop om the deck lid pretty much fixed it. Occasionally on a bad bump it will sqeak a little bit....
