My 2000 1.7 diesel estate has a high pitch 'rubber on metal' kinda squeak coming from off-side front wheel bearing area. only noisey when turned slowly by hand. there is no play as far as I can tell in the bearing and it has only just started to do this in the last 20 miles. I have stripped the pads, calliper and disc off so it is none of them. I have cleaned away all the brake dust crud hping it was that but this has not helped.
I'm thiking it's a seal binding somwhere but I read that they are sealed units .... was wondering if there is any way of sqirting some teflon / grease spray into the seals ???
if it is the bearing what sort of life do you think it will have left ??? MOT in a couple of weeks!!
Please confirm if it is the bearing or offer any other ideas guys???
