I've recently been having squeaking/creaking from the front O/S of the car.

Local independent could not find the cause as the problem was intermittent but they said that the car would pass an MOT.

Today my local stealership has informed me that the lower steering ball joint is dry. No play can be felt in the joint and the rubber gaiter seems to be intact.

I seem to remember someone on here had the same problem and had injected grease onto the ball joint with a syringe through the rubber gaiter then sealed the hole until a replacement was installed.

If that member is here please detail the procedure.

Can anyone suggest a reliable supplier for this lower steering ball joint :)

Buy a genuine ball joint from MB. They are £37ish plus vat.
