    Unhappy squeaking noise!!! aaaaaarrrgghhhhhh!

    Hi all!!

    I was was wondering if anyone out there can help.

    i drive a veccy sri on a 03 plate.

    When driving for about 10-15 minutes i can here a poxy squeaking noise coming from my passenger side wheels from 30mph onwards! i think its the front one.
    i only noticed this recently as ive been driving with the windows fully open due to the warm weather.

    The noise STOPS as soon as i touch the brakes. Also ive noticed the noise also stops when turning right?? My pads look fine but the discs are a bit worn.
    ive tried brake cleaner & even abit of wd40 in certain areas but to no avail.

    any ideas???

    Its probably the pads not clearing the disk. Maybe they need removing and that anti-squeek pad replaced - A sticky pad that holds the pads to the caliper/piston so they return slightly and clear the disk.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    The car is going into PNG next week for an M.O.T so i will tell them the problem whilst its there. Only problem is that if they (or whoever gets the job!) cant hear the noise i'm going to get stung for £75 per hour labour which they charge,look like a plum & still have the squeaking noise for my troubles.
