Yes, thanks for the responses guys. Randman, I may check out that flock tape. Looks like a decent product.

Just to put in my two bits...
I have been told that when removing door panels, trim or any interior items, to replace the little plastic clips that hold them. Once you have removed these clips, they almost never hold things in place properly again. I found a place on the web that sells loads of these things for a reasonable price.

or

Also, I had a similar problem with a Jeep Grand Cherokee, and it was the door lock arm. The doors are quite tricky and easy to put togather improperly. Just check and double check before you call it a day.

Speaking of the interior (I have no squeaks, by the way-guess I'm lucky) does anyone know if Pontiac services the leather seat covers? My driver'* seat is beginning to crack and get ugly, and I'm thinking of recovering it.

I assume that ordering the part from Pontiac would assure a good match in the color (taupe).

Anyone know?

I know my Lesabre squeaks a lot due to cheap crappy build quality. The plastic cover for the defrost duct (someone else mentioned this) makes a ton of noise when its colder outside.

I think that a bone yard would be your best bet
