    Default 2007 C5 HDI, rear bearing squeaking.

    Hi Guys, and Happy Christmas everyone.

    Drove down to Canberra yesterday to reminisce. But this morning went for a drive and I get rear right squeaking which I guess comes from the suspension arm. Anyone knows how urgently I need to get this looked at and if I can drive safely back to Brisbane without making thing worse.

    Am pretty sure I've read about this problem before regarding C5 but first time I struck it myself.

    That would be the later model with a multi-link rear end wouldn't it If it has a simple trailing arm (CX,BX,Xantia,XM etc...). It shouldn't be a big deal to stick a pair of bearings in there.

    Correct Shane, same style of bearing and shaft as the CX.
    May even be the same part number.
    Don't let them go too long, as they will start to wear into the arm, which will then require building up and machining.

    I recently bought a 2006 C5 with the same problem and drove it for about 750 km before replacing the rear bearings, which had, in my opinion, been shot for some time and probably the reason the original owner sold the car. They were very similar to the rear of the BX16V I did a few years ago. The salesman assured me that a bit of penetrating oil was all that was needed and it would be fine. He had NFI.


    I wouldnít hesitate to drive home. Cheers.

    Yes, ok to drive home, just don't wait 20000 km to replace them.
