I have a 2007 Note SE 1.6 auto, with just under 50'000 on the clock.There is an annoying sqeek from the front somewhere when the box changes from 1st - 2nd. Just wonder if anyone else has had this?

The usual cause of a squeak from the front (nearside) on an auto is the subframe mount tears out of the chassis rail underneath the airbox.


I don't see how gearchanges would affect it though, unless you are really making it go and it is the driveshaft straightening out moving the subframe, as the engine/gearbox are secured to the chassis, not the subframe.

My mechanic told me 2 years ago that my subframe mounts needed replacing, but since then, the car has passed 2 MOT's. Maybe they really do need replacing now then. Even when I accelerate gently the squeek is there.
