hello everyone, just got a 2000 model rx4, but lately have heard a squeaking noise in the back, and no it`s not a mouse. It comes and goes but is hard to pin point , can any one help or advise as to what it could or can be the cause. The car is in extremly good nick and was well looked after , f.s.h with it. But the noise is becomming a challange as to find it. Was under it and gave it a good bouncing yet can`t pin the noise.
Hi welcome to the club
I had the same on mine. If you open the boot lower door, there is a big block of black rubber on the right hand side. Smear something like Vaseline or Silicone grease on it, not too much, just enough to lube the surface and try it again. Make sure you keep your clothes away from it for a while when you are going in and out of the boot.
You could probably eliminate it by adjusting the door properly, but this is a 30 second fix and will last all year, or at least it does on mine.
