    Strange Squeeling

    recently i've noticed a strange squeeling noise from the front drivers side wheel at low speeds (up to 20mph), any idea's on what this could be?

    Mmm has your Dad been driving your car again ? any bits of the front bumper under the wheel arch ,

    Sorry couldn't resist, could well be your brake pads worn and its the audiable brake wear tag on the pads makeing contact with the disc you can hear

    hence i put LOUDER when turning, all the time the wheel is moving the power steering is working. check the fluid level under the bonnet.

    it could be the dust guard bent onto the brake disc, i had a similar issue, it would happen even if i wasn't braking

    Could also be a dry wheel bearing hub. Spray a bit of WD40 onto the bearing from underneith the car while turning the wheel.
