    Front Wheel Screeching

    Hi,

    Any thoughts please... had new pads fitted to my Astra 1.8 Auto Life 05 plate, and after couple of weeks the front wheel (drivers side) started to make high pitched screeching noise, (like metal on metal) when car is driving on flat surface like motorway/dual carriageway, ie smooth road surface. If you press brake pedal it goes away, likewise if you turn steering wheel left or right it goes away. I have had car back to the garage and they have striped down the wheel and brakes cleaned everything put it back together and few days later its back...!

    Any ideas please....
    thx
