    Squeeky Wheel Problem !

    Hi guys.

    I dont know why but my cars just developed a really annoying squeek at low speeds that I cant find the source of. Sounds like its comin from the drivers side front wheel, it sounds like its the brakes but the noise doesnt dissapear when u apply the brakes wihch means it aint that. I've stuck me head in the arch and there doesnt seem to be anything cathchin on the wheel. Also the noise seems to get worse on right hand bends :roll: or that might just be my imagination :roll:

    Has anyone got any ideas as to what this problem is and how to solve it other than putting my window up and turnin the tunes up :?

    It could be the dust shields thats been bent against the back of the disc and is catching, hence the squeaking, I had a similar problem myself, in that my brakes (drivers front) squeaked no matter what speed or brakes being applied, after it came back from the garage (to have strut tops put on) I took the wheel off bent the dust shield back abit so it wasnt catching, and reseated the brake disc (as my locating screws have snapped off and the disc now is held in place by the wheel)

    maybe able to help you with this, my Astra did exactly the same a few months back and after spending days trying to find the squeek it turned out to be the front o/s wheel bearing. because of the way the vauxhall ones are made on this car (they are sealed nylon type carriers that hold the roller bearings) they go dry and where as traditional wheel bearing tend to humm and drone these squeek and quite loud as well if i remember right. jack up car, take off wheel and remove brake pads and slowly turn hub and it should make the noise, best done after a drive as hub will be hot and it will then be easy to spot
