I climbed underneath it at 5:30 in the wet to try and fund out what the squeaking ticking was when I was driving slow and turning.
All I got was wet and dirty water dripping into my eyes. ... :angry:

A trick my dad taught me many years ago when I was a wee lad - he had a Cortina GT at the time and it made some horrible noises from the engine; just turn the radio up louder and drown it out!!!!
