    Default O/S Front Wheel Noise

    Noticed a noise coming from my offside front wheel today..

    i dont know for sure, but it could be a warped brake disc. It's not constant, but happens as the wheel rotates, and i hear a "shh shh shh" sound which increases in frequency as i accelerate.

    Am i aiming in the right direction with it being a brake disc/pad/caliper problem?

    Car seems to brake in a straight line as well.

    might be something caught in the dust guard Aidi....worth just prising it away from the disc a little and see if anything drops out.

    Has a good poke around, nothing fell out. Popped up to my local protyre, whipped off the wheel and found that a small heat shield right at the bottom of the disc guard had ever so slightly bent in and was touching the disc.

    Now nice and quiet again . And, they wouldn't take a penny either. Top guys at Protyre... Have always been great when I have used them.

    Cheers for pointing me in the right direction. Top marks chaps
