Go to the auto parts store and ask for advice (They are usually very helpful especially Advanced Auto Parts) or purchase a can of dw40 or similar lubricating product and spray the seat metal joints under the seat.
As to the window, if it's squeaking where the glass meets the rubber spray the rubber or treat it with armor all.

Hope this helps!
Let me know!

to me it suggests you have a stone in the brakes, drive backward a short distance then forward a short time , then repeat a couple of times. this should remove the stone. Another is dust and a similar manover can help. cheers

When I am driving it is a rattling squeak, going to replace rear struts this week, see if the noise improves.


Hi:
You are probably on the right track , replacing your struts, but it would also be a good idea to have a passenger help you locate the area of the squeak. Have them sit in the various other seats with the window down, and try to pinpoint which corner is the worst. You might have a suspension bushing causing the problem too. If your passenger narrows down the source, change either both front struts or both rear, never just one!

2004 Mazda tribute steering wheel squeaking


Well a steering flush would not necessarily be related to squeaking.

So, you need to locate exactly where the sound is coming from...
It really sounds like steering wheel turning and resistance causes the noise, is this constant, or only while actually turning the wheel?

Likely it would be semi constant, so that would focus you on the assist portion... Be careful around all moving parts, but you need to locate the source.

Try taking a section of heater hose, and listen through one end and move carefully around with the other end and see what you find. Likely something under the hood, with your note about window open...

Now, if the squeaking stops when the steering wheel stops turning, now steering components are suspect.... So, again, louder with window down makes me think outside and in front...I would stand in front of the car, have your handy assistant actuate the steering wheel, and you decide which side, right or left.... Suspect items that squeak only during steering wheel input include, amongst other things, the entire strut, all ball joint, including joints in the steering linkage.... Be sure to keep clear of moving parts, your handy assistant would not know they they are crushing you, while truning the wheel......

I have a 1990 audi 200. When accs. turn on alternater belt squeak


I agree. Replace the battery first. It's under the back seat, which will lift up after undoing two screws in the front of the bottom of the seat. Remove negative terminal, remove positive terminal, lift old battery out, put in new one, attach positive terminal, attach negative terminal, reinstall seat, and you're done.

If that's not the issue, you may need to replace the alternator.
