|05 2.0 Information on rear suspension noise - Geran1|
I am not a regular on here but thought it worth sharing, I asked a question a couple of weeks back regarding rear suspension noise on my Jag X Type estate but got no reply, after a little research and a bit of hands on this is what I found.
Rear anti roll bar bushes have been updated/modified I had already replace mine as they were very noisy.
What stars of as an annoying squeak from the rear (and is tricky to pin down where it comes from) was a worn Arm Control part #C2S 50863 fitted to off side noise gone. 6 months later other side started to squeak so I ignored it and it eventually went away, but later turned to a knocking sound bought another Arm Control (even got 10% discount) approx £45.00 + vat with discount, fitted noise gone.
There is also a common problem when reversing and you touch the brakes, the noise is what you would describe as the pads sticking on (only heard when reversing) it turns out to be a bush in rear suspension arm part #C2S 46380 approx £4 not yet fitted them I will
confirm if it sorts the problem at a later date.
Hope this may be of help to any X Type owners the arms and anti roll bar bushes are very straight forward to swap.
