Had the dreaded upper wishbone squeak on the passenger side. Time to change both, and do the droplinks at the same time.
All done by my more than capable local mech. Car back on the ground, and test time.
Exact same squeak still there, no difference in sound whatsoever..... WTF..?
After a bit of detective work, involving a stethoscope, it turns out the squeak is coming from the top of the shock absorber.
Retaining nut removed, and a second washer fitted. All tightened up, and squeak has vanished
Did change the oil filter and fresh Castrol Edge 10w60. New platinum plugs, and a new cabin filter. The one that came out was the original single element, must've been in there for ten years
All in all, a happy bunny... Feels a lot tighter in the twisty bits now
