    Hi all as the title suggests a random creaking sound has appeared on my car a couple of days ago. It only happens after i change gear and hit the accelerator hard then theres the creak. Also a loss of boost at the same time this started happening will a stiff actuator spring cause this and if so does that mean replacement or can it be fixed? Sorry if it seems vague but i cant really describe it any better.

    I don't know what your creaking noise is but it won't be the actuator....

    Get it logged then start from there..

    I would say its more suspension related...as you step on the gas, the sussy will lift a fair bit....its not coming from your seat is it lol

    Just a quick update on this the noise is alot worse now but easier to figure out its the alternator belt slipping under load.
