Front end squeak
Hi I'm a newbie from the UK. I run an FXT 4EAT (2.0 litre) - just over 3 years old. Great car which I have owned for about 5 months - it's done 34,000 miles.
It has developed a squeak from the front, particularly after leaving overnight and mainly when driving over ramps (speed bumps/humps are not so much of a problem). It doesn't seem to come from a particular suspension unit and often seems quite central, but also seems to move around!
My local Subaru dealer has had it on a ramp but can't find anything. However it is a 25 mile trip to the dealer and whatever is causing the problem seems to go away by the time I get there. I want to avoid leaving the car with them overnight.
Any ideas gratefully received!
BTW, great forum.
