‘chirp’ from left side when going over bumps


Mar 5, 2020
Had my car for a couple of months. Only started doing this a few days ago. Going over a fairly rough road, whenever it was a biggish bump (not like a massive pothole but enough to notice it), there was a ’chirp’ kind of sound from the left side of the car, roughly around the front passenger door area but difficult to localise.

Anyone had anything like that? I’ve had it a few times since and I might need to try and record it somehow eg with phone on the passenger seat or something in case needs reporting to service team

I’ve got a similar noise coming from the driver side front pillar between windscreen and side window. At first I thought it was a speaker playing up, but I’ve managed to locate the source as coming from the pillar cover. The movement while driving causes it. If I press it relatively hard the same noise occurs. I’d recommend you just try pressing the various parts and see if you can replicate the sound.
