Annoying squeak

Hey guys, been a while since I have had a problem with the Punto

But recently I have noticed the lack of power when starting up, I have never had this before and an annoying squeak when going over bumps no matter what size, I am trying to determine if it is coming from the front or the rear. Recently put in a new sub in the back and the parcel shelf is nailed down securely so it cant be that.

Any ideas on what could cause a squeak or common parts? As much help appreciated its more annoying than anything

You nailed your parcel shef down??
I have a similar squeak which i think may be brake shoes. Ive bought some new ones to test tonight so will update once i know more. might be same especially if handbrake is affected too

Re: Annoying squeak

When ever going over bumps, its not the brakes I know that type of squeak. ~I had a second opinion from my gf to where the sound is, she says it is coming from the center from the front?

Re: Annoying squeak

I adjusted my brake shoes and the noise stopped when braking
Sounds like you have a different issue, could be an exhaust mount if its coming from centre?
