    Default Front end noise???

    hi

    just recently noticed a noise from the front at low speeds. thought it was the brakes catching so i cleaned them all up and the noise seemed to go away but has come back after 2 days.

    had another look earlier and with the car not running and in neutral i rolled the car back and forth and the noise was deffinetly at the front and could be heard from both sides. it sounds like a rubbery squeak/creak and dissapears after moving the car about 2 inches forward and backwards. on flat ground.

    so i jacked the car up and turned the wheels and no noise at all so its only when the car is on the ground.

    too dark now to have another look and get under the car so im gonna have to wait till tomorrow afternoon.

    any ideas between now and then much appreciated.

    could it be a driveshaft gaitor i wonder? as the driveshaft turns.

    baffling me

    i hate noises that arent meant to be there. lol

    cheers folks.
