.....although I've not seen it yet! Haha

I'm confident this squeaking noise is coming from the passenger rear end. It squeaks even when the road seems smooth. I'm guessing it could be bushes or suspension related or possibly trim??

Would there be a way for me to check it is bushes without taking it to a garage?

These can be extraordinarily difficult to pin-point, but a good start would be to park the car on quiet, level ground, take the handbrake off, and just press lightly on each rear wing, listening carefully. Usually, suspension squeaks are a bit like creaky doors. When the suspension is moving up and down quickly, you don't notice them, but for small, slow movements you can sometimes hear something. (Obviously, chock the front wheels, leave in gear, never run with scissors, etc).
