    Default Squealing brakes

    My front off side brakes make a squealing/squeaking noise when I am turning the wheel. Originally, was just when I turned left, but has started making the noise now I turn right. I would guess this means new pads (have to excuse me, I have no technical mechanical knowledge!).

    Any ideas?

    Haven't seen a warning light though. I have a 52 plate GSI, which I would have thought was fitted with the pad warning light.

    I dont think you need new pads....warning light should be on..on the other hand is not normal that they squeel while turning.....sorry cant help more but IMO new pads are not an option....my best guess is to check the CV joints...they do squeel while turning if they are about to die.

    Absolutely f.......ng genius mate

    Had the car up on a jack, and had a quick look a few minutes ago, and yes, there it is, a small metal plate which was touching the inner disc. Bent it out a little, took the car for a quick spin, and noise has now gone.

    Cheers
