    Default Squealing noise from somewhere on the car

    don't know what forum section is right for this one.

    car has just passed an mot without advisory so this isn't a serious problem. very annoying though: -

    there is a loud "squealing" as i drive along - definitely not a fan belt noise.
    sometimes it goes away for a while. it gets worse when i go around right hand bends.
    replaced many suspension parts already including springs and anti roll bar links.

    anyone had this problem with their vectra and know what i'm on about?

    could be - but not sure this is the brakes, been going on for months on and off.
    very loud (pedestrians are turning around to see what's making the racket) wouldn't bother me if it didn't draw attention like this

    suppose i could renew brake disks and pads to see if that cures problem but loathed to do that without being sure.
