Default Sqeaking noise left driver side 98 grand cherokee.. anoying
My 98 Jeep Grand Cherokee has this little Sqeaking noise its goes like Sqeak,Sqeak,Sqeak,Sqeak 4 or so time really fast. Like if you ta ta ta ta fast outloud imagine the sqeak noise being like that in terms of speed. It stops after a few seconds, then randomly starts again whenever it wants.

Sometimes it does this when i turn, sometimes it does it when im driving in a straight line. It does it regardless of having my foot on the breaks or on the gas. Its been doing it for awhile like at least a year, i dont really remember it doing this during the cold winter, it seems to do it during the warmer days of the year. It seems to be comming from the left driver side springs or tire something, around in that area at least. Its not comming from the engine but near the left front . It almost sounds like a squeaking noise thats going up and down.. Thats hard to explain but i hope you guys understand it lol

Also the damn Belt in the front of the engine for a year now still makes that high pitched noise when the car starts then goes away. The idiot at pepboys losend tightend and replaced it like 20 diff times but it doesnt go away. Any idea's ?

I already had the wheal bearing replaced last year so i know it isnt that

Well i fugure out what it was, its the air filter box. I poped the hood once i got the noise to start again and smacked the filter box and it stopped.. It seems the box is a little lose because i can wiggle it and almost replicate the noise.

Are there bolts or something that bolt this down ? Maybe under the box ? How would i go about fixing this

Hit the link in my sig, I can't access them right now (Gov't POS PC), but I know that I have some ZJ files there. Maybe the Parts Fiche will show how it is supposed to be mounted.

I had the same squeek noise but mine was coming from the 4x4 selection handle. When I push is down a little bit it stops squeeking but makes a small grinding sound. little annoying

Well i figured out it was the airfilter box. It has 3 bolts that bolt to the frame under the box, and all 3 nuts were gone.. I just found 3 nuts with the wings on them, so you can twist it with your fingers, and the noise is gone... Thank god it was nothing major lol.
