[DML] Re: squeeking noise



Soma,

As you describe it,"rubbing glass with a wet towel" Then it has to be 
some kind of rubber rubbing,and the first thing that comes to mind is 
The Drive axle boots,check to see if those are torn/loose,or if 
something is rubbing against them,or have a helper stand outside the 
car,as you drive by,and see if they can tell from which side of the 
car,it is coming from,and of course "you did check" the brakes to 
make sure it wasn't the little do-hickies,that let you know when the 
brake pads are low,you did that right?
