Hi,
Wonder if anyone can help me I’ve got a very very creaky front passenger suspension I’ve been told by my father it’s more than likely just a bush I just wanted to get it checked on here too...
it got a lot worse after hitting a pothole if that helps! I can’t seem to upload a video unfortunately!
It’s creaking when driving along too! frustrating!! And also when you press on the car you can get it too squeak!

When this happened on my 211 it was the lower ball joint. Common problem I think.

A mouse in the engine bay can also create a squeak noise :D
