Sqeaky Squawking Rear Suspension
Hi yea, I've a 2011 old shape Berlingo with approximately 100k on it and the sqeaking and squawking out of the rear suspension is horrendous. Seriously you have to bearly look at the van for it to make noise, the slightest bit of movement creates a racket. So I was just wondering where to start with this issue.
Mine did that turns out to needing new axle
Wow, how do I tell if that's what I need. I thought maybe the shocks where the culprit???
Look at the back wheels ,see if they are leaning in at the top,, something like this /-----\
Yea there is a bit of that going on alright. Is there anyting that can be done to repair the situation or is a new axel the only option??
What happens if I continue as is for a bit, does the wheels fall off?? ??
Think you will b OK for a while,but I got a recon axle from imaxles,£300 deliverd,,,theres a post on here on how to check you axle,just seen it now
Mine is making similar noises, but has only 40k on the clock. Mine sounds much more to me as if it's interior trim (at best), and shocks (at worse). My noise is only evident on bumps (even the slightest) but is silent when running on a smooth road.

Any thoughts if I'm being optimistic?
More likely to be dampers at 5 years old unless it's had a really rough time. Have you had a look underneath ? Wheels do lean in a bit at the top that's how they are set. Unless they are ridiculously angled you don't need to worry, when the wheel top nearly touches the inner arch you really have problems. Here's Rustcrats old thread on what to look for.
So where does this bit go then ?

Check the rear sliding doors, they can make a really nasty metallic rattle. If you sit in the back while someone else drives you can stop the rattle by jamming your thumb in the gap between the door and frame. This is not intended as a permanent fix, just a diagnosis!
