    Hi Guys

    Having problems with Creaking coming from the back of the car i have taken it to be looked at as i thought it was the exhaust but its not.

    If it is on the back of the car it could be those heat shields near the exhaust...might be worth to check on those

    I had a creaking noise on moving off convinced it was from the rear of the car turned out to be the radiator mounts at the front.

    I will have alook at the radiator mounts tonight if a get a chance but it does sound like its coming from the back of the car will have to double check.
    i have had alook at the heat shield when the guys were checking the exhaust it seems to be inplace well enough and does not seem to move.
    anything else i should try

    Once Again, THANKS - I'd just booked my car in to get the replacement mounts fitted (£90+) before tracking this thread down - managed to oil, test and call the garage to cancel within 5 mins......To think that it's been driving me nuts for the past 18 MONTHS!!!!!!!!!
