High pitched squeak? Metal on metal
Maybe? Can he heard inside cockpit. Behind drivers side only, Sound only appears when driving, uneven road.. sometimes maybe a tiny whole in road to cause car to judder? Anything like that will make it happen.

Link to youtube vid is below as I cant upload the video. If anyone can help me, i would be ever so greatful. Mk3 Leon 184 DSG.

Can you specify the time where this squeak happened? As the only squeak I could hear sounded like tyre squeal under acceleration. Saying that however, when I had my Leon, there was some funny squek like sound from the drivers side or maybe near where the dash speaker was, turns out the dealer took out and resat the instrument cluster, and it went away...

Yeh it wheel span thats that noise your referring to. Listen to the video, you will hear metal on metal or like a bird tweeting away , and its when ever I'm driving over any uneven road surface, had the entire suspension looked at by 3 separate garages and they all say my sus is practically brand new.. if your listening via phone, put phone to ears and youll hear the sounds.

Sorry, but I couldn’t hear anything unusual. I had the volume up on max on my iPad in a quiet room with no other distractions and my hearing’s pretty good. I heard the tyre squeal at around 1.00 min into the video clip that @KXL refers to, the indicators ticking and the characteristic engine note you get with a diesel, but no high pitched metal on metal squeaking noise.

Let me get a time stamp, there is noise we have heard it lots of times, just garages are saying it could take many hours and thats going to cost a fortune. The noise is 0:16 - 0:21 seconds, and it makes that sound 15ish times in the entire video.

Maybe so, just weird how everyone on here says they cant hear it, yet others on facebook can? They're all like struts, top mount springs or w.e they are.. 2 garages on facebook messenger said they can hear what im describing but finding it would be a needle in a hay stack, they tell me to ignore it as its nothing mechanically wrong as ive had all the main things looked at. Sends me and my son who sits behind me mad does the noise. So **** knows.

Possibly but difficult to tell from ipad.
These noises killing me.
Thats the turbo noise.
Electric car will be perfect. I had before hardly any annoying noises.
Same as gearboxes always rubbish that not a problem in electric cars.

How about splash shields plastic?
That can do when resonate.
Fairly rubbish fitted here and there.
