What is that squeaking?
Yesterday a squeaking sound started to emanate from the back seat area of my GTV. It's not loud, but it is doing my head in. It sounds like a mouse squeaking but can't be a mouse as it only squeaks when I drive, unless the V6 wakes the bugger up and that's its idea of lodging a formal complaint about the noise levels. In reality it sounds to me a bit like some metal rubbing together. Can't place it though, but definitely the sort of noise that a dose of WD-40 normally sorts out in a jiffy.
If I stop and fiddle about with the back seats I can't get the same sound. My only choice is to ask the missus to climb in to the back seat and try to place the exact spot of the sound as I drive around the neighbourhood. The neighbours already think we are bonkers and having the missus bum glued to the tiny back window as I drive around accelerating and braking will definitely give cause for gossip. And there's another problem with that idea. After a few kids and 10+ years of marriage the missus isn't exactly in the "slim-petite" league any more. If I suggest she needs to climb in the back seat protestations will be made fortified with expletives and very possibly a stint of me sleeping on the sofa for a bit, which gives me neck pain.
I guess what I'm trying to find out is if anyone else has had a similar noise from the back and can suggest as to where it might be coming from.
Also I'm thinking I'll have to remove the seats to find it. Has anyone removed the rear seats? Any how to advice would be appreciated.
