    Default High pitched squeeling sound ?????

    Evening all i was taking my car to the garage yesterday for them to have a look at it (px ing it) when i drove it from my work there was a loud screetching sound coming from the car i thought it may be something with the brakes ect thought there might be gritt in the discs or whatever so i pulled over and couldnt see anything the noise comes and goes but when it comes its very noisey what could it be anyone???

    one more thing last week i noticed a knocking sound on the drivers side near the footwell its when i turn left could it be related

    the knocking sound could be a cv joint or drop link or balljoint gone or a track rod end if the screetching sound could be a tensioner redy to go

    Could be something trapped between the disc and the dust sheild on the front, when i had my front discs changed they knocked the sheild but it was more of a grinding?!?

    is this the knocking sound your on about ? bounce the car up and down make sure the knocking sound isnt a bush or a broken spring cv joints usualy make a clicking sound and usualy only on full lock or wen u turn the wheel if its the same side as the knocking and squeal if so it could be the wheel baring thats off in the hub
