    94 V6 Convertible "Creaking" from front

    Hi all,

    She's started making this odd creaking sound from the front.

    Doesn't happen when cold, only once she's been running for about 10 minutes, but as you go over bumps etc. there's this creaking / groaning sound that comes from the front somewhere. It gets worse the more the car is running.

    I have tried rocking her when she is not running and I can't reproduce it - no sounds at all.

    Any thoughts on what it could be? Wheel bearing? I don't think it's suspension based on the fact that it doesn't do it when stationary.

    Thanks in advance.

    Regards

    Steering rack bushes? Try turning the wheels when stationary to see if the noise occurs. They might just need lubricating rather than replacement, either way it's an easy fix.

          Lubricate one part at a time so you can locate where the noise comes from.

              Hi all,

              Well, the lubrication has been done and the creaking has now become an almost metal on metal grating.

              She's going to be looked at on Tuesday.

              Will advise...
