Default Squeek, rattle, and roll

Hi all,

Just took my car in because of a rattling, and squeek noise that came from the passenger side front especially when I turned right. The noise almost sounded like it was coming from inside the glove box or inside the passenger side door. The dealership started by lubing the hell out of the front suspension but that didn't work and the noise was still there. After test driving it all day they repositioned some power steering lines and changed the strut plate and bearing. That did it the car is now as quite as it was on day one.

Just a heads up if any you have a squeek, and rattle noise that doesn't go away after lubing the front suspension.

Just to refresh some memories:
Here'* some GM inside info for you 2000 - 01 Bonneville owners out there.
Hot Tip #5:
Subject: Intermittent Squawk or Groan Noise from Steering System >>> 09/13/02
Vehicles Affected: 2000-01 Bonnevilles
Summary: Replace Steering Gear & High Pressure Hose Assembly.
This is a situation where the owner may comment that the steering system emits a load squawk noise at times when the steering is turned at low speeds. The likely cause for this issue is an internal steering gear resonance. To correct this condition, replace the components outlined in this hot tip. Note that these parts are for vehicles with specific options. Care must be taken to get the right parts for the application. This information only applies to cars with Magna-steer "E" that was installed in some models in the 2000 model year.
The steering gear for the 2001 Bonneville SSEi is now available and can be used to correct a squawk concern on a 2000 or a 2001 Pontiac SSEi. Use steering gear P/N 26099978. Steering gear will be substituted with an updated gear.
These parts went into production at the following VIN break points: H Body gear 1G2HZ541224100674.

Well it didn't cost me anything because mine is still under warranty. Here are the parts that they changed:

Part number Description
22197789 Mount 7.395
908554 Bearing 7.395 R

Hope this helps, Good luck!

I just got my 2000 SSEi about a week and a half ago, so I'll be knockin on wood. Deathrat, I went ahead and bought a subscription to alldata.com . Was that a bad descision? Is there a free way to get access to the TSB'*?
