    Hi guys

    I’ve got a 2005 1.8 SXE in great shape. However after moving some heavy things in it due to house move it’s developed a squeak and alternately a knocking noise. Been to our usual garage and a friend of family who is a mechanic and neither can diagnose the squeak/knocking which happens alternately. It’s driving me insane. Any ideas what this could be? Everything underneath the car has been greased, the rear pads changed, the calipers greased and free’d up and the heat shield for exhaust replaced as thought it was that which was knocking.

    Thank you!

    Hi Eve,

    Its not very active on here anymore.

    I would suggest having a look around the boot area, check all the plastics are secure and the spare wheel, tools are jack are still as they should be. It could be a case of something moving around whilst driving. Although its hard to diagnose noises without hearing it!
