Smile 2001 Limited rear squeaking sound mystery

Anyone please help!

2001 Limited has a squeaking sound in the rear -- ONLY
WHEN TURNING LEFT...and sometimes when in reverse.
Does NOT squeak when turning right. Checked the
spare tire, the muffler and exhaust, and the rear hatch -
to no avail. Have the rear seats out, so it cannot be them.

It is NOT coming from the front of the PT.

Anybody have any suggestions?


My dealer is great but has not looked at it yet.



Thanks...

If you have disk brakes in the rear. You could be hearing the ware indicator telling you the pads need changed.

agreed.

and if you have drums one of them could be over adjusted causing the shoes to rub against the drum when extra weight is put on that side :-) happens a lot in reverse!
