Re: 147 suspension squeak
Hello - I've read this thread with interest as (you've guessed it) i've got exactly this problem!! My 147 is an 04 plate and has only done 32k miles but over the slightest bump it squeaks like a giant mice trapped under a large boulder!! After reading this thread I think that it may be my upper wishbones too and in wet weather the noise vanishes almost as soon as I start driving (in other words, when some water has splashed up and wet the offending area), but my questions are...
Is there anything easier to do to solve this other than replace the wishbones? I don't want the hassle or the expense of replacing the whole things so can't the joints simply be greased (even if I have to do this every few weeks, Iím happy to do this)?
If so what would I need to do to do this properly? If this is not an option then can just the bushes be replaced to save on buying the whole wishbone? I do dabble with my car but Iím no mechanic so please excuse my dumbness. Many thanks, in anticipation.
