Re: CRAZY SQUEEK??!!! (vr6dubsta)

Rear wheel bearing's castltine nut. I bet its loose. I had this same squeek when I had the interior of the car stripped out. I found it two weeks later when the wife drove the car up the NY and I was following in the truck. It wasn't until I was right next to the wheel with the window down that I found the location. an 1/8 of a turn later and no squeeks. I had the exact same noises that you described but could not put my finger on the squeek. I about had an acident trying to loacte it while going over bumps

Re: CRAZY SQUEEK??!!! (vr6dubsta)

first go through the rest of the car looking for a squeek. seats, interior body panals, sunroof, rear hatch. lift the car up and shake the wheel and feel for any play. There wasn't any play in mine but I continued the inspection and tightend the nut a little and bam squeek gone. You'll need to remove the rim then the dust cover and cotter pin. tighten the nut to the bentley specs and put everything back together.
