GT rear side creaking

I have a 1.9JTD GT and have owned for 18 months with no problems but recently developed a creaking sound coming from the drivers rear wheel. It generally occurs on any bumpy road or when the rear wheel is at a slightly different height to the rest of the wheels. It sounds like a creaking from the suspension but not quite sure what it could be.

Has anyone else out there encountered any similar problems?
and if so, could they enlighten me on the problem.

Re: GT rear side creaking

suspension creaks are unusual.

more common are rear hatch and rear seat creaking. in my car, i had a creak and discovered it was from the rear seats. as a test, fold them both down; if the creak disappears, there's the solution. mine was creaking where the latch on the driver's side seatback was locking into the main frame. a combo of lubricant and electrical tape (around the metal striker latch) fixed it.
