Dealer service manager said I'll likely get my car today, we'll see though.

OK, back in my car finally. Service manager waited around a few extra minutes for me to stop by after work and pick it up. Things sound and look good so far. I will look at it closer tomorrow mid-day when there's more sunlight and I can see better. Only time will be the judge of how successful we were in fixing the problem. However, I can say that a few road imperfections that usually cause the squeak were uneventful today on my way home.

I need to stop by the dealer next week to get new visor clips, as mine broke somewhere along the line with the removal and reinstallation of the headliner. I'll update again sometime next week after I've had a chance to 'take a microscope' to everything and drive more.

Congrats, I'm happy to hear that so far it's a successful repair. Time for an extended test drive to confirm that it's finally gone.

Never mind, it's still squeaking. No improvement. There's about a 3/4 in bump I drive over every day on my way to work that makes it squeak without fail... Today was no different. I heard it several times this morning already.

I've left a voicemail for the dealer service manager and the SOA rep and will follow up monday.

Wow, after all that work. Sucks to hear that. Did the welds not hold or do you think it's somewhere else they haven't spotted?
