The only fix for the water in the trunk is to replace the trunk seal, folowing EXACTLY, the install directions. The water actually gets it's way in at the rear most vertical sections of the weather stripping. new strip needs CORRECT sealer, buy from dealer only.

There is an improved design being produced now.

COMPLETELY clean all old sealer, a tough but necessary job...

Brake squeaks repair involves machanic in a tube on the METAL to METAL parts of the back of your pad. Ideally, you would resurface the rotors, or look at replacement, as that may cost less...

Buy top quality parts only for these brakes.

Popping and squeaking sound


The popping sound could be UV joints. But hard to tell if one cannot hear them. Worse case scenario, transmission going. The squeaking sound is probably your struts. The upper strut bearings are probably worn, and that could mean the struts are worn too. Depends on the mileage on your vehicle. The springs twist when under stress and this is what the upper bearing is for. In good shape, it would not make any sounds.

Front end noise


Squeaking CV Axle bearings... Bad CV axles are expected to click but they can also on rare occasions squeak... I know because I had that experience with a 1984 Sentra when doing a U or close turn only. Other parts that could theorically squeak at low speed, and depending on the condition and brake pad material.. would be warped disks or glazed brake pads... but at low turning speed, the CV Axle is more likely.

How to fix the torque bar located in the trunk lid


You need to position the spring with the bushing on it against the hinge and set it into the slot just under the panel behind your backglass. On the opposite side, pull the end into say the middle hole for starters and make sure it is seated completely. Do the same for the other side, open the trunk and make sure it stays open, if not you can adjust it by moving your torsion springs to the next hole.

Popping or knocking heard in front end when riding


Sounds like the Spring may be broken or there is another loose front end part such as a ball joint or a spring seat or something like that.

I had a broken spring on my 1990 Cadillac Deville and didn't know it until looking at it up under the wheel, and experiencing a popping or knocking sound when turning.

It could also be the bearing cap area problem.

Squeaking sound from shock absorbers


ball joints won't squeak like that; they make a popping noise when they're bad. it is very common for shocks to get water in them and start squeaking, and it's usually a horrible screeching squeak. The only way to get rid of the squeak is to change out the shocks. Hope this helped.

Front end squeaking possible rotor rubbing something.


Have you checked the metal clips that olds the brake pads in the front galiper bracket. They usualy rust, break loose and come in contact whit the disc, creating a squeaking noise. Those should be replace since they are needed for the brakes to work properly

Squeak


how about brake calipers?

squeaky noise is common from brake pads going against the brake disc.

This is caused by lose calipers or stiff calipers unable to fully open up. This makes the brake pads very close to the brake disc.

When you are travelling at a certain speed, tension on the wheels may cause it to incline inwards or outwards at a very small degree but that is enough to get the brake pad to rub against the disc causing the squeak.

Another possiblity is the brake disc rubbing against the disc guard. Usually metal and behind the disc. You said you had a collision, this may have distorted the disc guard causing some parts to touch the brake disc.

Popping sound


Make sure the shocks are reattached at both ends; also if it has coil springs vs torsion bars, they may be twisting upon spring movement. if not sure, you can squirt some oil on the bottom of the coil springs to test. if the popping stops then the springs may need repositioning (twisting to the proper spots) or get an after market pad to place underneath the spring where it contacts the lower "a"frame. good luck
