    its your brake pads that making the noise, and as for what is making then make a noise could be a number of reasons, dust, brake pads getting low (but usly hear a griding nice then) it will go way in time nothing to worry about. had it plenty of times, bit embrassing when you go through town because people look and they think your cars falling apart. sure someone will confirm me on that

    could be, but the reason i fought the brakes is because its happened to me before few times, and when i braked and turned a corner it would stop, first time was needed new brake pads, other time just been dust but went after a couple of days

    yeah might be dust but it doesnt happen all the time when driving only if ive been braking hard! but it comes and goes! but at high speeds its ok its only when u drive at low speeds!

    if it was power steering fluid wouldnt it happen all the time even when cars cold?

    yeah sounds like the brakes to me, that happened with me to when it went over about 50mph the noise went, and came back when going around town. but id just give your car a quick check over, fluids and brakes (see if they getting low)

    if it's making the noise, it's the pad rests and caliper faces that need cleaning.. then reassemble the brakes with a smear of copper grease wherever the pads touch the pad rests and the back of the pads..
