    Get rid of the other half... or better still tell her to get rid of you.???:Smile:

    Can you be a bit more specific.... Do you mean it creaks when you are in it.. or is it creaking as you drive along?:Cool:

    :BigGrin: ok so now we have got over the inuendoes :censored:2- any serious ideas:helpsos: - it is the bed when slept on and turning over makes an awful noise - just wondered if anyone else had similar probs and found a solution before I start ripping bits out and spending money on new bits. Thanks in anticipation :)

    Can you tell us do you mean when you are IN it or is it creaking all the time as you drive and go over bumps? My bed creaks when I turn over in it and I would think that is normal but does yours sound like the wood is shrinking or something in cold weather?

    I'm going be serious even if no-one else is. Yes, I had a simillar problem. It appeared to be the wooden frame under the mattress. I sprayed every joint (of the frame) with WD40 and it stopped. Worth a try!

    You mucky-minded lot!
    I think they are very brave for posting in the first place.

    I had a similar problem, and after being asked to keep the noise down....
    See? Now you've got me at it.
    Where was I ? Oh yes....
    Rub a candle on all the slats and contact surfaces.

    Avoid oils as it will just attract dust.

    Sorry...
