Re: 159ti - the return of the creaking suspension
Mine seems to do something similar but the dealer has given up......
Had some suspension mounts replaced and a new shock absorber, seemed to be ok for a while but now returned, the main noise was a hollow knock, like someone hitting the side of a large plastic drum everytime i hit a small bump or change in road surface height or man hole cover, mainly on drivers side, ive tried driving over the same stretch of road but putting the passenger side wheel over the bump and i get a thud but not this hollow knock.
Now i get a creak when i turn into my road or kids nursery car park, both are turning from a flat surface onto a slope so there is steering and suspension travel at the same time although suspension does not creak in a straight line.
I also have the wrong steering fluid which the dealer does not want to replace as he says i do not have any symptoms which will allow him to claim under warranty.
