Squeaking Noise

13 posts in this topic

Drove home the other night with the radio off as you do from time to time and noticed I had a squeaking noise coming from the rear drivers side of the car. I had this problem before and it was the heat shield abouve the back box which had rusted at the bits that connect it to the car and came loose. My local ford garage said it wasnt realy necessary and removed it. Now im guessing it must be another peice of the heatshield thats came loose. Any other ideas as to what it could be?

Is it a squeak or a rattle? A heat shield will cause a rattle.

You sure its not a bushing or similar? I had this on my CMAX on the front, and it was just the dried out bushings that were replaced...

if you can get it up in the air, take a nosey at the joints and the bushings, just rub your finger across it, if it feels dry its quite possibly a contributing factor...

*Update* Right managed to jack the car up on sunday and the heatshield had been removed as stated so its not that. The joints felt ok did feel dry etc. What i did notice is where my side skirt from my after market bodykit joins onto my car the paint has split right along the joint. I'm thinking the noise could possibly be coming from the side skirt having come slightly loose. Ive only just thought about that there since i looked at it so im going to see tomorrow if my sideskirt feels loose.

Right had a good look/listen tonight. My side skirts are firmy attached mustve just been the paint thats not taken properly at the joint. I can actually hear the squeek when the cars stationary and it seems to be coming from the engine bay drivers side round about the cam belt section possibly the belt?
