    Hi chaps,

    My car has developed a bloody annoying squeaking noise, its pretty damn loud too.

    Its only really when going at slower speeds round town, but it can be heard outside the car.

    I have had a poke round when the car is stationary but I can't provoke the squeak!

    Any ideas what it could be, its driving me mad and I am going to the 'ring at the end of the month.

    Any more information? Does it change when you brake? Does it change when you accelerate/decelerate? Is it the same round corners/over bumps?

    I'd be looking at wheel bearings & brakes based on what you've said. Have you had any work done recently?

    A mouse??

    You sure its coming from the back, common problem is a squeaking/creaking noise from the ARB Bushes.
