  • HOW TO stop squeaking from rear !!!!

    Usually the rear torsion bar suspension bushes where the edges just rub against the body bracket. These are the large bushes with bolts through on outside edges of car underneath at rear just in front of rear wheels.

    There was supposed to be a tech bulletin for it.

    Cure is to spray with white grease. [Tried silicone spray. Lasted for 2 days.]

    Jack up a side at a time or on a ramp and spray from above so it runs down and penetrates. It may return so repeat.
    If left it just rubs away gets covered in dust and stops.
    Safe Driving ! Andy

        You should not use grease or anything like it as TIS2000 recommends against it. Vauxhall service centers offer a better quality ones (parts shown in newest EPC version) within warranty. I had mine replaced and problem solved.
