    Default squeak when turning left

    Got a problem with my car I have a sort of squeak coming from my left front wheel. When I'm not moving and I turn the wheel there is no noise but soon as I'm turning left when moving its back any ideas on what it could be. I've tried pressing the breaks but it don't go away when I press. Any ideas

    rust on the disc edge, when turning it catches and makes the noise. when turning right it should stop. should go after a day or two driving or take wheel of and go round the edge with a wire brush. i have found that many times hth

    It could be the heat shield at the bottom inside of the brake disc rubbing on the brake disc as the wheel rotates. I had this very problem.
    With car parked on the road, wheel on and in the straight ahead position, lying flat on the ground, I put my arm around the back of the offending wheel and fumbled about until I found the inside of the disc and noted that the heat shield was resting against the disc. I then did the same with the other front wheel and noted there was an air gap between the heat shield and brake disc.
    I simply prised the offending shield out slightly with a screwdriver and no more squeaking\squeeling as I drive.
