Hello all. Not too long ago, with no reason whatsoever, my car began emitting a high-pitched squeal when I made a left turn and when I braked. It seems to be coming from the front, passenger side tire area. Its consistent and squeals even without brake pressure. Usually it starts after making a left turn, and would stop while I was making a right turn, but would come back when going back straight?

I don't think its the brakes since sometimes the problem starts when I make a left turn. Also since braking doesn't change the pattern of the noise. But who knows?!? Its driving me crazy. Possibly a belt? Any suggestions, similiar experiences welcome.

EDIT: I just thought about it. The squealing disappears once I'm at a complete stop even though the car is still idling. So maybe belt is not the issue? Also the squealing gets higher pitched at higher speeds.

Sounds like your calipers are going.. I know cuz my rear ones went last year, now the fronts are doing the squeek squeek too.. I got at least another 6-8 months before mine go.. learning from previous experiences I guess.. hehe. :)
