Please help me stop the squeaking!!! 😫🔫

Recommended Posts

This started a couple of months back but has now gotten worse. It's basically squeaking the whole time now when I'm driving. I'm guessing some screw loosened up? Can anyone help me out, pleeeeaaassssseeeeeeeeee before I drive myself into the ocean!

They’re quite easy panels to remove. I suggest removing the section which has the traction control buttons (two Phillips screws at the bottom of it in the cubby hole), then behind it there are two screws which hold that trim section in place. Check to see if they’re tight. If they are tight, pull up the rubber in the bottom of the cubby hole bit and you’ll see two more screws. Remove this and you can get the whole bit of trim off easily.   Remove and refit, see if it helps.  If it doesn’t fix it, buy some foam tape and put it in the gaps of the offending areas. Hopefully this helps!

Squeakwise I suffered exactly the same fate with my Sport 350 from 2017 - meanwhile that horrible noise was removed by KomoTec - it was so annoying that at that time I seriously considered to sell the car, unbearable.

I don't know what KomoTec did, but - as for me - that squeak is gone for good.

To deliver a car in 2019 in that price range with disturbing noise like that is simply inexcusable, an infamy.

Hopefully Geely will sort that out.

Thanks will do that today, if it doesn't work I have an appointment at the dealer soon to swap out my brake pads, will have them take a look at this while there
