    Have started to notice a squeek when I get into / out of my 99 1.8i se. It appears to be coming front the rear drivers side shock. Any ideas on the cause, it's a lot more marked when you rock the car from side to side? Cheers

    Could it be dust inside the handbrake drum? When a bit of dust gathered inside the drum in my old e46 it made a noise as I got into/out of it.... The shoes move on the back plate causing the noise.

    I removed the disks and cleaned everything up and the noise went away... Easiest way to tell is if the noise goes when the handbrake is off and you get in/out..

    Does this happen when you have the parking brake on? The squeek could be the shoes rubbing against the inside of the rear discs.
