    On a 1997 Pug 306 1.4 Style I have the following problems:

    1. Occasionally when going over speed bumps or 'near lethal' pot holes in
    the road, a thump sound comes from the front passenger side - it sounds like
    the bumper thumping, but theres not a single scratch mark on the bottom of
    the bumper, and it is no way close enough to the road to scrape it in my
    opinion anyhow! Have check the suspension and all is very firm as expected
    on all corners of the car. What could this be?

    2. When turning to the left at speed, say above 20 Mph there is an on and
    off squeaking sound - seemingly from the front drivers side of the car. When
    going at slow speeds there is no noise heard at all. Wheel bearing on it's
    way out? Brakes? What could this one be?

    Any advice would be most gratefully appreciated.

    I had both problems on my 406 and in both cases it turned out to be mud
    flaps. The rear one was striking raised ground (road humps et al) and on
    the front one the mounting strip had bent outwards and was fouling the wheel
    on turns. Removed the rear ones and straightened the strip on the front
    one. Fine now.

    I have a Pegeuot 306 XR 1.4l '96.

    I have a problem similar to yours: I get creaking/squeaking sounds from
    the backside of the car when going reverse or turning. Not sure whether
    it is just left or right - I don't know.

    I would love to stop the creaking, so if anyone knows how to, or what
    causes it - I'd love to know. I also heard something about problematic
    anti-roll bars on Pugs, but I'm not sure whether this is related.
