Just wondered if anyone else had this:

In the cold winter months, by front bushes creak over bumps, but when it warms up in summer they don't make any creaking at all :rolleyes:

I'm guessing it's the rubber which becomes harder and less flexible in the cold.

Am I the only one with a fair weather 155? Must run in the house hold as my dog doesn't like the cold or rain. When I get to the door to give him a walk or let him put for a [email protected] and its p155ing down, he just looks at me as if I'm an idiot, with me imagining him thinking "you don't expect me to go out in THAT do you?"
Tought I'd share that with you.

Not the front suspension bushes but i have a seasonal interior :p

Depending on whether its a hot day or a cold day the interior trim creaks and clunks more or less :confused: so does the sunroof :confused:

And now me seats just creak all the time :D :D :cool:

This also happens to me in my 146 (the 33 rattles all the time :D... cold or hot :D). Even on a hot day if I turn on the Aircon it starts to ratle...
Normally on cold mornings the rattles dissapear after some kms and after the car warms up.

I think it's all down to material expanding or shrinking due to temperature variations / issues ;)

All the Best

Cover the wishbone bushes in WD 40. If you have the poweflex ones, then you must have forgotten to put the copper grease in when you assembled them!!!

Oh leather is lovely. Mine is black and with doorcards too. Strangely Wrinx is jealous of mine too. I just thought I would twist that knife after 5 years of coping with the envy!!! :p

Hi Henry!

I use the WD40 in many different parts but I do not know if I can use it in rubber ?
So it Is not harmful to use in rubber bushes? :rolleyes:
