I have an 85 ptype, took out privacy cover, but squeak is still there. I think it is coming from the rear hatch, I have noticed two types of grommets, a larger square type mounted on the body, and a smaller round type on the hatch. Are these grommets the source of the squeak? Can anyone help me stop the squeak?

If you think it is coming from the hatch itself, then it should be pretty easy to find. There isn't much in the hatch.

The plastic cover piece that attaches to the bottom of the hatch and covers the access holes for the rear winshield wiper is held on with a few screws and several spring clips. I have found that these spring clips need to be spread periodicaly as they compress over time and cause a squeak in the hatch.

happy hunting!:)

1. Replace the rubber blocks with nice new ones.

2. Cover them with a few light coats of silicone. (Let dry thoroughly)

3. Try moving the latch down, if it has any adjustment. (I haven't looked at this yet, but most of them are adjustable)
