Annoying squeek. pass side HELP

everytime I start the car or hit any sort of bump I get a metallic sounding squeek. I figure that it might be the pass. side fender or the antenna. I have checked all the interior panels and they dont make that noise. The windshield header is a possiblilty but i cannot reproduce the souund without driving it. I dont think its suspension because why would it do it when i start the car. Please help, what could this be, its driving me crazy thanks, Oliver

I'm thinking motor mounts have gone bad causing something else to rub??

Good luck, Dwayne

im pretty sure you have the same problem i have... tierods...
every bump I hit either big or small I get this annoying SQeek sqeek... sounds like a mouse getting run over :-) if im not mistaken the tie rods are have no grease fittings so your options are either replacing them or if you can, inject grease into the fitting with a grease injector.

i slid under there and tried to shake the tierod and heard nothing. It sounds more like a body related squeek i dont know. motor mounts is still an option. again, the question remains, what do bad motor mounts look like, and what are the symptoms

update even though no one cares. It is not coming from inside the car. I put my ear right by the pass. side front wheel and could hear it. I have the wheel off and its in the air, but i cant find it cause i cant cause the suspension to move enough. could it be the cowl plastic piece, i heard the cause a chirp/squeek noise. thanks to whoever might be nice enough to reply

I posted this on a different thread but I'll do it here too.

I had an annoying squeak like that, it was driving me insane! It turned out to be a little bracket on the underside of the passenger fender, in the wheelwell. This little metal bracket was rubbing against the underside of the fender, making a squeaking noise. I was able to find it by using a jack to raise and lower the wheel as fast as I could. I put a ton of grease up there and it hasn't squeaked in three years.
