What the hell is this weird squeaking noise?!? (Video inside)

I notice when I am driving at low speeds around 5-25 mph in first or second gear this werid squeaking noise appears like something is loose. When I get to higher speeds it goes away. Let me know what you guys think.
thanks

brake system, they are known to squeak. Apparently when the rotor wears down the sensor makes the brakes make noise, To get rid of it, "Brake replacement!"

Some have had luck zip tieing the brake sensor as well. The noise generally stems from the passenger side front.

The noise occurs when I am not braking tho. I just had my rear brake pads changed a week ago

I know that, but it's your brake system, it happens Only on acceleration and after 20mph goes away. It's the brake sensor making contact.

do a search on the forum for "Brake squeal on acceleration"

it's been talk about a lot. The only way to truely get rid of it is aftermarket brakes. The almost always is the front passenger side brake.

Really depends, if you complain enough normally they will change it. I had maintenance warranty but was not due for brakes, and through enough complaining they replaced them.

Every dealership is different, are you CPO or original.

I've had that occur for me as well. i took mine in and it ended up being a bad wheel bearing. They replaced it and the sound is gone.

I have EXACTLY the same thing. At lower speeds (below 70 kms/hr) when I turn left. Sounds like it's coming from the passenger side inside the cabin. So annoying.

I had the same issue and took my car in to the dealer. They replaced all front and rear brake pads and rotors and since then I have not noticed it.

Brakes are considered wear and tear and would not be considered for cop however factory warranty I believe you might be able to get away with it since it covers maintenance.
