    Default Squeaking Noises

    My car has developed 2 different types of sueaking noises

    1) is quite loud and occurs when applying about 1/4 turn of left hand lock. Not dependant on moving or speed and only at this position so suspect its the steering rack.

    2) is a very faint squeaking, only audible with the windows open, but occurs when the front offside suspension is stretched upwards (such as turning left or when you've just jacked the car up) and you apply a sideways force to the car. Theres a particularly uneven spot at my local sainsburys that gets the suspension at the right place each time Squeaks only from the offside, and occurs whichever way you push the car.

    Its only happened since i cleaned under the arches so im guessing ive cleaned some grease out of somewhere that needs it

    But where ??? any suggestions.

    I'd jack it up on blocks/ axle stands and start the engine and have someone turn the steering wheel to and fro while you carefully listen....
    It may seem a bit crude but, at least you can listen close up...
