    My 2008 Hyundai Santa Fe developed a creeking noise in the left rear about a week after purchase. Type hmaservice in your browser and register to find a Technical Service Bulletin describing the problem and fix. The fix is far too extreme for me to allow on a new car. Apparently as the car experiences torsional stress, metal is rubbing against metal causing the creeking noise.

Maybe a little lubrification of the suspension is need, I had the same problem but in the rear. Get yourself a can of white lithium grease in spray and shoot all the place where the suspension move. something like 6-8 places. You'll find the can near de Jig a loo and WD40 BUT take the Lithium formula. Silicon grease will only work until it rain...Job is really esay, Take de spare jack for more space to move around suspension parts. Make sure to do not over spay brake disc !!!! :P

I have 2007 Range Rover HSE Sport with a rear suspension squeak.


Squeaks come from metal movement and can be hard to trace. If there has been a suspension rebuild using aftermarket springs then the diameter of the spring material will be bigger than original. This reduces the inside diameter of the spring and this in turn doesn't allow the spring to sit properly on the mount pad. Check for rust signs at the base /top of the springs and ensure that the springs have clearance inside . Next if polyurethane bushes have been used in the suspension mounts this will be a source of noise as it will not flex and any movement will produce a noise. Noise is from dry so look for telltale rust marks to identify the part that is moving when it should not be

New rear suspension and they make noise


Caravans had a real issue with rear suspension noises, and one of the suggestions from Dodge was the addition of a spacer washer at the bottom shock mount to space it a little farther away from the axle housing. I have seen many new shocks that "knocked" right out of the box new. It is possible one of the new ones is defective

I have a 1999 Buick century and their is a hissing noise coming from the rear pasanger side it sounds like a air leak from something but I'm stumped to what it could be. It does it all the time as long...


You can have an exhaust tailpipe leak or a muffler leak when the noise is farther to the rear of the car. You can have a leaking rear suspension bag if you have adjustable rear suspension.

For the suspension problem, you will be able to use a spray of soapy water to see if a line or suspension bag is leaking. Or some of the better scanners can be attached to your car and the suspension access plug will tell the condition of the system.

Squeak coming from rear of car could it be brakes?


Any noise to be identified need a perfect OBSERVATION of the spot of generation. Have the test drive with someone at the wheels while you confirm the spot - front or rear. now touch the brakes to see if the noise cuts off or increases. Now push the car vigorously up and down to check the suspension. If noise is heard it can be the suspension. Now it will be good to have the car up a ramp to have a first hand check on the suspension, the links, the bushes. make sure there is no metal touching the mudguards/ Tyre's.
Now jack up the rear wheel one by one and turn them to hear any squeaking. if so remove tyre and wheel assembly to clean and reset the assembly.
If not the rear suspension links /bushes/ shock-absorbers must be removed and reset.
