    creaking noises

    Hello, I have a 51 plate S3 which has some creaking and groaning issues.

    when coming to a stop and braking lightly, i can hear a "errrrrr eeee errrrrrrr eeeeee" noise which sounds rotational coming from the passenger side front.

    Also, when going over speed bumps I get a creaking from the rear, which makes the same noise as a parcel shelf jumping around in the back. I took my parcel shelf out to make sure it want that!

    The noises have got my head done in, please help!

    Cheers

    Hmmm ...


    I wonder if this is down to the weather as I've been having the same problems and doing a bit of searching showed up a lot of recent threads from people having the same issue.


    I found this:

    http://www.wak-tt.com/antiroll/antiroll.htm


    I know it for a tt but the principle is still the same.



    I went to halfords and it seems they have stopped selling the nylon/rubber lube so i had to buy this:



    http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_storeId_10001_catalogId_10151_productId_21 9033_langId_-1_categoryId_165705


    I think its the same thing only re packaged.



    Ill let you know how i get on

    same problem here, changed all my bushes about 6 months ago so I think the weather over Christmas might have done some damage!? Got some of that original silicone spray somewhere gonna give that a shot.
