A Few 147 Niggles, any advice?
I've got a couple of 147 niggles you might be able to point me in the right direction before I seek action from my garage, hopefully some I can fix myself. The car is in good condition and this is the first time since I bought the car 2 years ago I've had any issues, so I'm due some!
- Squeaky suspension? When I go over bumps I get a noise that can only be described as a squeak crossed with that sound you get on films where somebody runs over a dog, that kind of quiet yelp... Does any1 else think my bushes are in need of a replacement?
- Back wiper. My back window wiper has started slowing recently and is now getting to the point where it actually stops half way on my window if its raining, you can give it a hand and it'll complete it's movement, but its basically like it's seized up somehow...any ideas?
- Squeaky brakes, I've read a bit about this, but my brakes only really squeak when I'm coming to a stop SLOWLY or only apply minor pressure to the brakes at a slow speed, at high speeds, I don't get a squeak...any ideas? Brake dust? Pad replacement?! Who knows.
and finally...bit of a joke but my missus thinks it's important (even tho i'm quite sure she broke it)...the vanity mirror in the sun visor has broken so it just flops down if you open it...the lights still work but she has to hold it up...very annoying, apparently...
Any information about the top 3 would be most appreciated!
