Rotational squeaking noise coming from front left wheel

Postby Tywhiteguy » Sun May 10, 2020 2:17 am

Hello all, I recently noticed a squeaking noise coming from my front drivers side wheel. I’m pretty sure it’s not the brakes because it’s only on a certain spot as the wheel rotates. Also it’s only when I turn the steering slightly to the left. If anyone has any idea what this might be I’d greatly appreciate it. I know it’s not a huge deal but it’s reeeaaally annoying when you have a loud exhaust and you can still hear a squeak thru the turn. Thanks again

Possibly a wheel bearing
Take it to your local mechanic and have a chat

Could be the pad wear indicator squeaking.

Even tho it doesn’t do it when I hit the brakes? I did upgrade my rotors a while back but I’m running standard pads.

The noise the indicators make generally does stop when the brakes are applied
