    Strange squeeking sound

    I have got a squeek coming from the passenger side of my car (mk4) It is noticable when driving along at lower speeds, as at high speed the wind noise drowns it out.

    I noticed yesterday that the squeek seemed to stop when I turned the steering wheel a tiny bit

    I have checked a few things and it isn't: -

    wheel bearings
    brake pads - these have been re-copper slipped...

    Might be worth mentioning, that the car passed the MOT on monday just gone, so I'm assuming it can't be anything serious...

    Anyone got any other ideas as to what it could be??

    Have you checked there isn't a mouse trapped under the seat?

    Ive had the same problem for a year now,it goes away in the winter,and only happens at very slow speeds.

    Haven't had any luck in tracking it down,and everything looks ok.
