    As the title suggests, my suspension is making some annoying noises. First off, I get a creaking when I go over speed bumps, now I'm led to believe this is the anti-roll bar bushes needing lubricated. Is there any truth to this? Secondly, I am getting a lot of knocking that sounds similar...

    Hi, I am experiencing a sort-of amplified creaking sound similar to what a door might make from the rear-end of my car. Originally I thought the sound was coming from the boot but it is not. I tried pushing down on the rear of the car and the sound was sometimes heard/other times not heard...

    Well this problem with my 95 2.3 SE MY01 has me stumped. A couple of months ago I noticed a rotational faint squeak under light braking from the front left wheel which got louder over the course of a few days. I had it checked, it was diagnosed as poor pads and disc, replaced the lot with cheap...

    I have a 57 reg Vector Sport Estate and when I drive over speed humps that are now on many road in my locality there is a a definite springing/ creaking noise from the rear of the vehicle. It seems worse in dry conditions and I am wondering if there is an issue with bushes in the suspension...

    My driver's seat (06 Vector Sport SW 1/2 leather) has started making the most appaling creak from around the left hand side bolster area everytime I move. Is this common? Any known cure? Oddly it only appeared after a visit to a garage for new rear brakes.

    I've recently bought a 2006 Saab 9-3 1.9Tid sport (150). Unlucky for me when I was driving it home from taking delivery of it on Friday, driving down the motorway, a humongous stone flew up and hit my windscreen, leaving a big chip/smash about the size of a £2 coin. Luckily I managed to get it...

    Hi guys, I wondered if anyone could help diagnose a potential problem. If I rock my 9-5 estate via the roofrails, there is a creaking noise coming from the rear suspension. Anyone any ideas what it could be? Or is the cold weather just causing this? Cheers, Finbo

    I live in speedhump city & have to cross about 10 of the things to reach the open road. My wife's 2004 convertible makes an awful creak when negotiating these. It seems worse on cold days & is OK by about the 5th one. I have a large can of WD40, is there anywhere I can squirt it to resolve...
