Q: Rear shocks squeaking

asked by on

The rear shocks are making a loud squeaking noise.

It is a common problem with this car to have the key wear down and not trigger the tumblers in the key cylinder. The only fix would be to replace the key assembly and switch. I would suggest having a certified technician come out and see if he can get the key to turn because if he can you can just replace the key lock cylinder.
