Re: [DML] Re: squeeking noise



Andy,

It sounds like the problem is a loose rear stub axle.  With the back  
end off the wheels, grab the edge of the tire at 3 o'clock with one  
hand and 9 o'clock with the other.  Alternately try to push with one  
hand and pull with the other.  If you feel any movement, you have  
found your problem.  Sometimes the fix is as easy as tightening the nut.
