Question

When driving along my car makes a creaking/squeaking noise. It is more apparent when going over bumps or turning corners. It sounds a bit like the suspension but I am unsure. Any ideas what it could be and if so how much it would cost to repair? Thanks!

Question

I have a 53 plate Ford Fusion 1.4 that has done 30,000 miles, recently when i am turning either left or right whilst accelerating there is what sounds like a metalic scraping sound for a second or two from my front off-side wheel. No vibration, just a metallic sound like metal moving on metal. This only happens when accelerating & turning and has only started in the last two weeks. The brake pads were changed last december and look to be ok and the steering doesn't seem to be affected so I thought it could be the bearings but have been told they shouldn't be a problem after only 30k miles. Any suggestions?

Question

since having the lower offside wishbone replaced on my 1995 mondeo 2.0Si (with a modified later type) to get it through the MOT, the car pulls to the left...I have had the tracking adjusted by a garage, but it got worse! Do I have to get the nearside wishbone replaced also with the later type to match?
