    Squeeking when i go over speed bump or any dip?

    I hear the shocks kinda Squeek or this uh-uh sound whenever i drive over a bump or sumthing. Its pretty anooying not to mention a lil scary!

    Anyone know what could be the cause of this?

    Re: Squeeking when i go over speed bump or any dip?

    How many miles do you have on it? Handling is OK still?

    My first response would be to leave it alone, drive it some more, and see if it goes away by itself. Only take it to a dealer as a last resort. The less they take things to bits and put them back together again the better IMO.

    Re: Squeeking when i go over speed bump or any dip?

    If its from the rear and the car is 4 or more years old then i'd say its the bushes in the rear suspension drop links.

    Re: Squeeking when i go over speed bump or any dip

    my 987 made creaking noises going over speed bumps slowly when i first had it.. doesnt do it any more though. I cant remember how long it did it for.

    Re: Squeeking when i go over speed bump or any dip

    It's almost like a metal straining noise.

    50000 km. It started around a year ago but now the noise is much more noticable and happens over every minor bump.

    Would this be covered under warranty?

    Ah. Not new then. I'd go with the knowledgable Percymon then. Keep us posted.

    Ok so is it covered under my warranty?

    Re: Squeeking when i go over speed bump or any dip

    Sounds like a sway bar or definitely part of the suspension, godforbid an engine mount.

    This problem plagued all 996 GT3s since the swaybars were delivered loose from the factory with a bad alignment (standard issue haha).

    Tightended it up and the car became solid as a rock again.

    Not sure if it applies to the boxster, but definitely sounds like it is a suspension issue.

    Re: Squeeking when i go over speed bump or any dip

    So is it coveredunder the 3 year warranty?

    Re: Squeeking when i go over speed bump or any dip

    Probably, but phone dealer?

    Re: Squeeking when i go over speed bump or any dip

    In Canad - probable covred by warranty.

    In the UK, unless you are very persistent with your dealer then its classed as wear n tear and no warranty claim.

    My experience is based ont his being a weak point on the 986 series cars - as you are talkign under 3 year warranty i assume you have a 987 - i imagine the root cause could be the same.

    Re: Squeeking when i go over speed bump or any dip?

    It might be the gasket around the windshield, it will make that type of noise if water is trapped in/around the gasket. the windshield moves a lil when the car goes on uneven or bumpy road even at slow speeds. It feels as if its comming from the suspension.
