    Astra G squeel when braking and turning

    as above.

    astra G "s" plate.. 1.4 ls

    it is squelling when breaking and turning left from the front passenger side wheel.

    any ideas as to what this could be?


    disks and pads?

    Give the brakes a look over and make sure everything is how it should be.

    check for wear on the discs and that there is plenty of life left in the pads if that fails copper grease on the back of the pads

    It sounds like the wear bar is doing what it should do and letting you know the pads want changing mate!
