Bit of a squeal!


Now that the weather is a bit better and we can have the windows down I have noticed that there is a feint squeal coming from the car It doesn't happen all the time but only when turning left and warmed up. I notice it in the multi storey carousel and I think it is from the front right and very feint. I can't hear it when there is traffic, at speed, or with the windows up.

Any ideas what this could be before I take it to the garage? It must be to do with the wheels and sounds like brake squeal but they seem to work fine.

Probably break pad wear sensor. They're rubbish for squealing.

If the noise is coming from the front right it won't be the sensor as the front is situated on the left, rear is situated on the right.

I've got front right squeak chirp as well every time I go into car park and drive I notice it. None weather related.
