E85 3.0i creaking noise when turning

Post by MattyHook » Sun Jun 09, 2019 11:31 am

Hi all, new here but have been a member of the Facebook z4 group for a year. Booking my e85 in tomorrow to be looked at, horrid creaking noise from behind me (sounds like it's coming from the offside right wheel area) when I turn to the right - any ideas at all. There's also a squealing sound coming from around the steering wheel when I turn slowly i.e. parking

Any suggestions would be a great help :)

Cheers

Matt

did the garage find out the source of the creaking / squealing sounds?

Search on the forum for 'whale dying' or similar - yes really.... :D

Example here;

Might be a pointer to your problem with the steering wheel noise.

Check strut braces for tightness
