Newbie 147 owner questions


As the proud new owner of a (nearly) new 147 2.0 T.Spark (only 17000 miles!), I have a couple of questions if I may, my apologies if they are answered elsewhere on the site, please feel free to redirect me.

1. There appears to be a high pitched monotone 'squeeling' sound, similar to the sound made when the brake pads have worn through and the calipers are grinding grooves into the discs but not as loud! which appears to be coming from the left rear corner of the car. However it only happens when I am turning left, and even then only when the left rear wheel is significantly unloaded, for example when cornering hard. Any ideas???

2. Can anybody recommend any particular engine oil that's good for the 2.0 T.Spark? I am aware that the engine oil needs regular checking, and was wondering if there was anything in particular that I should keep in stock.

Thanks for any help/advice you can offer!
