So first issue after 12 months of ownership and 32,000kms on the Overland.
An infernal squeaking noise coming from somewhere in the front passenger area - sometimes around the A-Pillar area, sometimes it appears to come from dash on the passengers side but mostly around that A-pillar area but really difficult to pinpoint. Exacerbated by uneven roads and general crap surfaces (normal around here) but strangely, completely disappears when it pours with rain.
I did a JG search and found this thread:
Thank goodness for JG and the description of styrofoam being rubbed together completely explains the noise.
So, popped the bonnet today and found 'potentially' that it could be the rain-runoff pipe from the windscreen found on the very right of the engine compartment (as you are facing towards the front of the vehicle). It seems to have slipped out and down from where it should be connected to.
It appears that the run-off pipe has popped from its position - (just under the red bolt is the hole and the connecter which is attached to the runoff pipe has slipped out and down)
Second pic - (position not so obvious here due to size of pic)
It is too tight and not enough lee-way IYKWIM to reconnect it back to what appears to be the correct placement for the connection so its off to the dealership for us.
Spoke to them today and explained it as far as I could. No need to book it in they said, just bring it in when you happen to be passing and we'll look at it straightaway. Thank you Narallen.
Will try and find some time this week hopefully but maybe next week will have to do.
Also, comparing the other side (the driver's side that is), the drain-pipe is tight and attached, which makes us think even more that this is the issue. Am really hoping that this is the cause because I'm not happy about the the possibility of taking that A-pillar apart.
