Hello! Purchased a used 14 plate Qashqai J11 several months back. I noticed there is a really irritating squeaking coming from within the panel on the drivers door. Nothing appears to trigger this, it's generally when the car is in motion.

My second issue us the speaker on the passenger side of the vehicle appears to cut out every now and again, is this likely to be a faulty connection or is this a common issue?

Third issue, a grinding rubbing noise when the steering wheel is fully locked, the sound is progressively getting louder. I've watched a few YouTube videos and people have sprayed wd40 on the steering column, I understand this often causes rust so wonder if there is an alternative solution to fix this?

Many thanks for all help, in advance

The squeak I get from the drivers door is from the arm rest which is, I believe, notorious. Give it a wiggle and it might stop. Mine did and I now only have a problem when I put my arm on it (which is kind of the idea I guess!) On the steering issue more notoriety I'm afraid. The steering bushes are a known problem so I'd get them checked. Lubrication only seems to help temporarilly. I eventually had mine changed and the squeaks stopped.
