Subject: Re: 2000 9-3 front strut noise, need advise

Yes I have noises from susspension all round - I recently went on holiday and with a full load speed bumps are very noisey.. However after a few days they got quieter - seems like the suspension needs exercise. Going across at an angle is also better. You might try hitting the speed bumps a bit faster (not too fast) to really work the suspension! The carpet trim on my 93 also leaves a gap - seems like the mould cuts the carpet too small. Watch out for the drivers seat foam comming loose as well it means loosening the plastic trim to reseat the seal. If the car is particularly noisey at the back over some surfaces try tightening the spare wheel not - mine was tight but not tight enough :-) "JL" <> wrote in message > My 2000 9-3 SE went in for it's 10,000 mile service this week.
