Hi all,

I have noticed today that I am getting a creaking sound in the rear left of the car, not sure if its there all the time but it seems to be certainly at low speeds. I'm not sure if its the bushings or the suspension its self, ill hopefully get it on the jacks/ramp at the weekend. Anyone had any ideas or experiences? (I have a 08 Dooper, if that helps)

Cheers

Mine makes a knocking noise at low speed on big bumps. but there's nothing wrong with it apparently - had it inspected at mini, although mine is an 05/54...

I'll check that, was it anything specific in the tool kit? Strange as its at the rear left and not in the centre at the rear

it needs to be pushed down firmly or attached properly depending on your MINI

A very common fault we see at sytner sunningdale is rear anti-roll bar bushes knock generally you can tell if you put the car up in the air and grab anti roll bar either side and try to slide it if it moves you need to replace the bushes they are only about £20 from the dealer

I would say it was the anti roll bar bushes to. Very common and we do loads of them, around £50 fitted including VAT.
