Body squeaking on 2014 Nissan Leaf - With Video!

Mon Mar 19, 2018 11:08 am

The short video below will let you hear it. I have an appointment on Friday to have this checked. Thanks for any thoughts on what it might be or if you've had the same problem with resolution.

It's probably a rubber bushing moving against a steel part without the correct silicone lubricant. It may also be suspension springs that aren't properly coated or seated. As for linking videos, use the URL tag after highlighting the link.

PLEASE don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

After some testing the squeaking only seems happens when the parking brake is enabled.

My 16 SL has squeaked since day one.
I took it to the dealer and they lubed something said it was fixed (NOT)
Now I look at it as kind of a handy thing - easy to verify that I remembered to apply the parking brake :lol:
