Chirp, chirp, chirp...
Hi all,
I've got a '99 Multispace 3 door with the 1.9 DW8 engine.
And an odd problem.
I have a road speed related chirping noise that sounds like a tyre squeal, but in pulses of around 0.5 seconds.
This is very audible with the drivers side window wound down, passing a reflective surface. It sounds like it's coming from the drivers side wheel.
So far, I've replaced:
Front pads
Drop links
Wishbone bushes
Front shocks
Strut bearings
Power steering fluid
I've also tried swapping the wheels with the back ones.

Any ideas? It's driving me nuts!

Could it be your alternator or belt squeaking it usually is ? Try some silicone spray on it.
So where does this bit go then ?
Does sound like a belt.

Does the noise continue when your at idle/stopped?
Fan belt tensioner ?

Whatever's causing it, I hope it's cheap, cheap, cheap.

My money would be on the plastic inner wing moving in the breeze and running on the edge of the tyre.
Check the plastic fixings.....
The Older I get the Better I Was!  Cool
The noise only occurs when the vehicle is in motion.
Generally above 10mph and up to around 50.
The inner wing plastics are secure and have had all the fixings replaced when I did the shocks.
About the only thing you have not replaced is the wheel bearing , have you checked this?
