    Question Wierd Creeking noises when moving off!

    I have wierd creeking noises when I move off. I've had a look underneath and can't see anything untoward. Anyone else had this? Could it be dry bushes??

    Front or rear if front its likely the drop links and if its likely the rear sticky handbrake mechanism

    If it happens at low speed and only when moving off, it could well be the radiator mounts. Common problem.

    also try

    after going at this day after day, i have sprayed silcone lube over almost everything that could creak or squeak and finally think i have narrowed it down to worn out engine mounts, the front one in particular..

    I will leave it lubed up for now and hope it gets through the MOT this friday with it while i source some uprated powerflex ones if they exist, time for another call to my mate Nick at Neo Brothers i guess..

    try and get somebody to pull forward while you stand next to the car with the bonnet up and see you can locate that same, i had the wofe behind the wheel while i climbed up onto the front slam panel, i hung onto the back of the engine bay while on my knees while the wife pull forward a few times and the found the noise to be coming from the front mount

    Thanks for the replies guys! I have been spraying silicone lube like no tomorrow under neath! It is more when pulling away and does seem to be louder when going over speed bumps. Also seems to be worse when the weather is warmer/dryer!!

    Vehicle : Vectra and a Signum

    Trim : top of the line in both

    Engine : Z18XE,Z19DTH,Z20NET

    Year : 2006

    Default

    Front lower engine mount. Take it off and lay it on its side, spray silicone lube spray around the circumference of the rubber bush and leave it for 10 mins ish so the lube creeps through. The bolt it back to the car and try it. Sorted mine. E18 socket and an 18mm spanner is all you need for this, oh and silicone lube spray of course.

    Let us know if it works for you as well.

    Thanks for that. I don't suppose you have a pic of the front lower mount?
