Hi folks, ive a loud squeaking noise coming from underneath car. Seems to be coming from back of car but not sure. Noise stops when clutch is pressed in or under acceleration. Noise changes with speed. Ive checked the breaks and theyre fine. Any ideas? Drive shaft bearing maybe?

See youtube clip below to hear the noise?

It does sound very similar to a stone that has lodged between a dust guard and a brake disc.

Either that,.....or theres no oil in the diff and the bearings are screechin like mad:eek:................(which i'd highly doubt).

Also that exhaust is a bit rattly there, no harm taking a quick look at it.

+1 Clean your brake discs, take of pads, and clean hopefully thats the problem

Thanks for the replies. I have already had all the disks and breaks off the car and the noise is still there. Doesn't seem to be a break issue.
