  • Another squeak fixed

    recently my car developed a squeak/creak from the front when at full lock each way - typically when moving inor out of a parking bay. I went over the front end but couldn’t find anything loose and neither could the suspension shop when they did a wheel alignment. Then I had a brainwave and loosened off all of the bolts on the bashplates and drove it round the block - no noise!
    So my permanent solution has been to put nylon washes on each bolt between the body and the bashplate. Has fixed the creak but it has also made the whole car much quieter and more “solid”. It must have been resonating somehow. Big improvement to the NVH for a simple a cheap fix.

      Yeah, my bash plates are always coming loose or making a rattle. Might try the nylon washers idea 👍
