squeak / creak due to engine hood / bonnet latches
When I go over speed bumps or up my driveway, etc. at an angle I get a squeak sound similar to a "bird chirp".
Note: When my car was up on a rack most recently we tried everything to make the sound happen. By moving the suspension up and down,pushing, pulling, etc. to no avail. Moved the exhaust system. The sqeek would not make a noise. So we lightly sprayed WD40 everywhere that we could think of. That did not fix the problem.
I'm thinkin' sub-frame mounts but the car is at 21K miles and 6 years old.
Please help if you have a fix. It's driving me crazy.
