    Drivers side squeak

    Hi, I had my car serviced a few week ago and since then it seems to have developed a squeak on the drivers side when turning right. Anybody any idea as to what this can be? Rather annoying to say the least, thanks

    Considering the weather of late, arb bush maybe, spray some wd40 into the bush & see if it goes.

    Is the ARB bush easy to get at Nigel? Do I need to jack the car up?

    Turn wheel to lock so rear of wheel sticks out on relevant side, you can get in between to direct spray into that area, done it myself & squeak went

    I sprayed it for a prolonged period given its very tight in there, the sustained pressure may have forced some lube into the bush/arb area, a little spray may not help the issue, it may not even be this at fault, but 1 easy thing to check for sure.

    Nigel you don't happen to have a picture of this ARB bush do you? I'm going to take the wheel off tomorrow I think, need to know what I'm looking for exactly rather than WD40'ing everything in sight

    Just follow the arb through to the center of the car, you eventually come to the bush/brackets.

    I can't get rid of this squeaking no matter what I do, I've had the wheel off to check if there was a stone lodged somewhere and I've sprayed everything with WD40 with no joy. Any other ideas as what can be causing this? Thanks
