Default Tips on general maintenance on S80

Hi.. ...

Just want to know if anyone there has any tips on Oiling/Geasing the S80..
that will help in No or Min squeaking all around the car?
I.e. is there a need to put a bit of grease on the pulley's, shock absorbers etc? which will help in smooth/silent running on the vehicle..

PS: I seem to getting bit of squeaking sound around the car, but not able to loacte where the sound is originating...

Any pointer?

did you listen to the accessory belt ? it could be that, the bearings in the pulley could have worn out,

when is it happening ? all the time ? cold vs warm ? suspension when hitting bumps ?

I don't mean to assume anything, but are you sure that the sounds are coming from the suspention components or "pulleys"? It is very difficult to locate some sounds in a moving car
Try completely empting the car - the Glove box, center console, door pockets, seat back pockets, under the seats, trunk. I mean everything, even things you know couldn't possibly squeek. Check your spare/jack/tools for looseness.
Then drive it, it's frequently dead silent after this "treatment". Then think about what you put back in (bet you leave half of it out!).
