166 creaks

Having read and posted myself topic's on the 166 door seals creaking, has anybody got any new ideas? I also have two new creaks 1. top of dash near window 2. front suspension.

Looks like a bigger tin of silicon spray is required!

My 166 front suspension has developed a knock/rattle which we eventually traced to the vertical links on the anti roll bar. There is no noticeable wear,my garage traced it by disconnecting the links!

i have read on here that creaking fronts are the top wishbone bushes, knock the lowers.

The creaking doors i have too, and a new one that sounds like the dash/screen area, but when i lube the door rubber it went for a bit.

Dont use silicone spray though as it makes it worse.

Some petroleum jelly in the crease between where the door rubber mounts and the soft bit that folds over it(when closed the two bits fold up and rub together, the sound is rubber on rubber, not the door metal).

The new 156 i notice has felty stuff on this part of the door rubber, presumable to stop this noise.

Does anyone with a parts CD have this new Felt covered door seal listed, and if so how much?

or can you get spray on felt stuff?

Hold the rear end slide....don't run wide!
