Rear window sedan crackling noise.

It seems my rear window in 2008 sedan has developed a crackling noise sheet metal stress kind of
noise, I had a friend drive the car around the block while I was in the back listing for the source of
the noise, hard to pinpoint exactly where , but pretty sure it coming from the upper left area of the
rear window, this just started to happen a few days ago seems worse when car been sitting in the sun
sheet metal getting warm, this morning cool out side the crackling noise was gone, got off from
work car warmed by sun it was full on again , it is quite loud and very annoying, bumpy road and
turning a corner really trickers it, this really worries me is the unibody having stress failure??
I got 42000 miles now so this would not be covered by warranty from what I read in the warranty
booklet , the car has not been abused very normal driving, Am I shit out of luck here ?
learn to live it , should I give the dealer ship a try ? or is this properly A waste of time.
Anyone with similar problem, any advice on what to do here greatly appreciated thanks.

Wow, weird I've actually noticed the exact same thing since the weather warmed up and was thinking about posting it here on YW soon.

I don't know what it is exactly, and I haven't had a friend drive the car yet so I could get back there and pin point where it's coming from, but for me, mine sounds like glass cracking(I know it's not) mixed with a kind of squeaking. I just assumed it was one of the plastic panels in the back vibrating or slightly misshaped because of the heat.



Mines an 08 sedan with only 31,000 miles so I hope it's nothing major.

I owned an 07 sedan before and it had almost 60,000 miles and never had this problem.


Edit: I have noticed it hasn't been as bad lately...around the same time I got my windows tinted. I wonder if during the installation they compressed the back panel or moved something ever so slightly to help alleviate some of the squeaking.

Edit: I'll try and get video of it soon. Hopefully the sound will pick-up on the camera.

^Hey krolos,

See if you can get video of your noise too. It may be more prominent than mine.

Audio on my cam very bad, I had my windows tinted long ago before this
this problem I dont think It has anything to do with it,
sure enough I just went to the store this evening, cool outside and the
crackling was totally gone, metal expands in temp differences so maybe
this has something to do with it.
