Noise From Top of Front/Rear Doors When Windows Are Fully Up on BMW 330xi

A creak or squeak can be heard from the top of the front or rear doors. This noise is most noticeable when the windows are fully up. The noise is caused by the decay of the flocking material on the door seals. New door seals, Teflon tape, special lube, or a combination of all of these may be needed to eliminate the noise.

Weird squeaky noise that sounds a lot like cracking glass from somewhere, I assume it's the window seals in the front of car but can't pinpoint origin. I just live with it and the hundred other problems my little German machine throws at me
