    Radiator mounts...try a search for the numerous threads on it. Usually fixed by WD40.

    The 2 anti-roll bar bushes can creak. You can see them if you look down behind the engine - there's one on each side on the top of the subframe.

    There are how2's on here about replacing them. As a temporary fix, I sprayed mine with a little silicone lubricant and that has quietened them down for now.

    I had a nasty knocking noise frm the front, both springs were snapped. Had them replaced but still a quite a bit of noise. It was the anti-roll bar end link rods.

    My 2.2DTI SRI creaks on speed bumps, funnily enough mainly at the start of a journey, I'm pretty sure it's the anti-roll bar bushes.....I'll try the spray silicone, thanks

    usually its the radiator mounts when we have damp conditions, could well be anti roll bar bushes, aswell as drop links or track rod ends.
