    Default my car is squealing

    hi guys a bit of help needed please, just back in from picking my wife up from work and driving out of the drive there was terrible squealing and noise like metal on metal so drove the 1 mile to pick her up and she could hear me from a fair bit away, now when i touched the brake pedal it stopped but resumed when we took off again it seems to come from the front passengers side, the strange thing now is that when i reversed the car into the drive the sound was that of like pulling metal from metal, so i took the car out to see what the problem was and now no grating and no metal sounds at all, so as i,m going to nottingham on friday driving down from cairnryan i would like your thoughts guys before i take it to the garage tomorrow, many thanks

    Tiny bit of grit or something trapped between the brake disc and the small lower ball joint guard or that guard has just got too close. Move it out the way a few mm and it should sort it
