Question
Hi, recently my 2003 mg tf has started squeeking from the front near side when im stationary It's when I turn the wheel, When I'm driving It's constant, It sounds like my suspension, tho I cant see any breaks or cracks. Any idea's

Thanks, Scott.

Answer
I don't claim to be an expert on the MGF and MGTF.  However, I am aware of this problem and it is usually due to inadequate lubrication of the front suspension.  There are grease nipples at the front and I would recommend that you use a grease gun on them every 3,000 miles.  The first time you do it, they may take a lot of grease.  Thereafter two or three pumps should be enough.  If that doesn't fix it, get back to me.
