How annoying is it!!
:angry:
over the last week or so the driver side front suspension has been squeking like mouse in a mangle!

its getting worse


I thought it was the side bars coming loose, but it isn't

I looked under the side of the car but couldn't see anything loose, so I wd40'd the rubber just behind the wheel arch,( think its the bottom of the shock absorber?) and it went away for a day ( I also tightened the side trim )

the noise is towards the side of the car, rear of the wheel :puzzled:

I'm off to the dealer tomorrow...I'll let you know what they say! :gunsmilie:

I notice from your pics you have the side tubes fitted.
Some have come through with mounting brackets to long, they rub on the body when cornering, as the body is mounted to the chassis with fairly soft rubber mounts, the body actually moves very slightly, and comes into contact with the bar mounts, ask dealer to check this.
This causes some very odd squeaks :angry:

thats what they said it was...

they had it on a ramp and tightened them...within 5 mins it was back louder than ever.

I'll see if I can get my spanners out and have a fiddle :blush:
