i got a creak from the rear nearside, i thot it was the toolkit initially, so i moved it. turns out it wasn't...

it dont creak/rattle when someone sits in that seat tho, or when she's packed with guitars... and steaming women lol

do u guys have ur toolkit in the little rubber bits at the side/floatin around the boot or under the spare? i can't get mine under the spare... is it just me?

Mine creaks on the nearside, took it to VX yesterday to have a look at it (along with some other things) and they said there was nothing wrong with it! But I think the handbrake might have something to do with it.

Mine creaks and rattles from new. Nothing is loose, so I'm hoping the noise will go with wear (I'm only at 1300 miles)

Is it the same squeak?

Mine started squeaking today, nearside, but only when I'm steering slightly to the left or right, not when driving straight, or on really sharp turns. It's not affected by bumps, I haven't touched the suspension, and there's about 30,000 miles on the clock. Any guesses? :?

have u guys had the steering racks checked?

Apparently they go on C's quite a lot. Mine was rattling and creaking. Took it in and they said it coul need new steering rack if the bolts they tightened didnt fix it.

My car's booked in at Vauxhall tomorrow (Friday). I'll let you guys know what they say. Knowing my luck, it will be the most expensive part not covered under warranty!!! :(

D'Oh! I've just spent 3 hours in Vauxhall waiting for my car to be fixed - the squeek was the front near-side brake which had siezed in the calipper. I was also helpfully informed that I needed a new tyre. Total bill: £122.26!!! For a F#@CKING SQUEEK!!!

Ah well, I didn't want to have a life this weekend anyway!

Cheers for the advice guys

Mine creeked with standard suspension, and still does with Apex springs. I think its the damper, maybe needs a bit of greese, i'll take mine off and do it one day when i can be arsed
