I have a Fiat Punto X reg 1.9 diesel. It has done 53000 miles. The problem
is when I get out of the car on the right hand side of the road, there is
little noise. But when I get out on the left hand side, meaning a ride side
camber in the road, there is a squeak coming from the rear/sides of the car.
When I press the back down, this also happens.
Your suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Most Fiat squeaks come from rubber bushes, often the rear trailing arms but
the front also has bushes. Unfortunately Fiat don't seem to list the bushes as
a separate part, so you have to replace the entire arm, in most cases an
expensive job. There are rubber lubricants, which don't last long, then squeak
comes back worse. If car gets through MOT (UK) then just live with it.
well you can get the brushes for the rear arm, but you need to take the arm
off anyway, so new arms are much easier to fit when the whole thing has been
taken apart anyway...
a friend of mine helped me to change both of them on my punto,
