    It took three trips to the dealer last time to stop a very noisy low speed brake rattle from the front brakes so I am attempting to just grease them myself as that is what they said they did to finally quell the loud noise. Sounds like a blown or loose shock from the front as it goes over any...

    Over the past couple of days, the tensioner pulley bearing has begun to squeal on cold starts, finally settling down once the engine warms up.
