    As above, a possibility
    Equally, there may not be enough grease / unevenly spread grease on the back of the pads

    surely that would only make the noise when braking ????

    Very true, but was under the impression "braking when turning left and right" and so posted another possible reason
    If it is only occuring when turning left and right then it needs to be looked at

    Is it definately coming from the brakes?

    When I change pads I always chip away any excess build up of rust on the ends of the disc rotors.
