I own a Mg Hector hybrid (6 months old) 6500 km on the odo.
A creaking noise comes whenever the brake or accelerator is pressed specially when the angle dips or raises as in braking or accelerating.
It has gone for the rectification of the same to the service centre 3 times but to no avail.
They have done everything from replacing shockers, brake cleaning , Retorquing the subframe mounts, yet the noise is present.
The sound doesn’t come on standstill and also it doesn’t come on bumps or potholes.
They say thay it isn’t due to engine mounts , transmission mounts. or suspension
When the subframe screws were checked they were all tight
When the subframe screws were retorqued it was then that the sound disappeared for about 10 days and then returned.
The other 2 times when just brakes were cleaned and greasing was done the the sound came back in a day
What could be the reason ?
Is it a major fault?
It is there since the 2nd month
