    Suspension Rattling/Squeaking Noise

    My car has 8000 and change kms on the odometer. Lately I've been noticing a noise whenever the front of the car dips down like on a speed bump or going down a steep hill. It's like a scraping or squeaking noise from the front right shock. Sounds like something has gone loose. What could it be?

    you can hear from the recording, for 2 minute of drive, the sound is persistent, and was very obvious.. But when i brought the car to the dealership a month ago, they said they can't hear it... what a bunch of liar..

    I am going to dealership tomorrow for tire changes... with this recording. they can't say they didn't hear it...

    Same here front ARB bushes useless! Mine is on it 3rd set now and they are noisy again! I've got six months warranty left but can't be bothered to go back again for another pair of rubbish bushes fitting! I'm gonna wait until powerflex start doing polly bushes for it. They make front camber bolts at the moment so the Micra must be on their radar!

    Just came back from dealership, the guy tried it and said it's the heat shield... I am going to pick up the car in the afternoon and see if the noise is gone.

    So this is what they say:

    Heard the noise coming from the inside of the passenger side front door. Removed Panel and roadtest, noise still there. Remove parts and roadtest, retight all bolts, noise still there. Need window regulator front right.

    Took the guy 1.3 hour.

    have another appointment scheduled in 2 weeks while waiting for the window regulator.
