πŸ˜’ lovely drive to the farm shop but on the way home a nasty sounding squeak has started on the passenger front left not noticable on a well surfaced road but on the b roads oh dear that sounds painful, next trip back to es motorsport me thinks any thoughts on possible causes ?? (drives straight and on braking etc)Β

Didn't the repairer test drive before returning it to you?
