That last squeak..!

Hi there. I am the happy new owner of a 147 2004, 1.6 cool dark blue. However since purhcase 8 weeks ago I have had three problems. Thankfully 2 of which have been solved by the dealer..

Can you help me solve the third!?

The first was a high & Loud squeek coming from the the rear side wheel that went away when breaking. It got so loud in car parks it would cause quite a stir! New breakpads solved that.

There was also a rattle from under the car that has had a replacement part secured.

However, the third problem was not important at the time compared to the other two. Basically when I go over a bump or break to a roundabout for example there is a rattle / squeeking coming from the steering wheel. Can this be solved! It is loud & rather annoying and not what I'd expect from a two year old, doesnt make me feel secure.

Thanks for your time.

Mr Cooper

Re: That last squeak..!

Sounds like front suspension bushes, mine sounded like it came from the steering wheel, think there are 3 bits that normally give trouble
Top arm bushes
Lower arm bushes
and for the rattle i think the drop links may be worth a look.
