04 Concorde front left wheel squeaks when turning braking and accelerating from stop?
I just had this problem and it was because I changed the brakes and the new rotors where touching the lower ball joint heat shield. I just had to take a screw driver and bend the metal heat shield just a little and the squeal went away

Excluding the brakes why would a 92 Honda sometimes have a high pitch squeak when turning but not when turning the wheels when the car is stopped?
Bad wheel bearing if you are referring to a grinding noise. A squeak can be many things. Loose power steering belt for one.
try checking fluid level
What is the cause of a 99 Cavalier that makes a loud grinding-squeaking like noise when the wheel is turned to the right yet stops the moment the steering wheel is centered or to the left?
Answer . \nWithout seeing it , I will tell you that most of the time wheel noise that happens when you turn the wheel is due to a CV axle that is failing. Test is this way:… go into a large vacant parking lot and turn the wheels to the right and go in reverse; is the noise worse? It may be if the joint is bad.Usually a wheel bearing will make a low growling noise; but you called it a squealing noise. I hope this helps a little.
What might cause a low mileage 2005 Mazda 6 to squeak near the left front wheel while backing up and the steering wheel is turned to the left?
I have a 2003 Mazda 6 with approx 80k miles. This noise confounded me for months. On ours, it showed up when pulling into or out of our driveway (forward or reverse, always wi…th the wheels turned hard left). It is NOT the CV joint in the axle. It is NOT anything rubbing in the fender well. It is NOT the wheel bearings. I finally found it after we had the brakes done. After having the rotors turned and pads replaced, the noise went away for about a month. I thought we had licked it, but it came back. Then I found it. There is a thin brass (or maybe copper??) bracket that fits between the brake shoes and the caliper assembly. Supposedly this absorbs vibration and prevents the caliper assembly from wearing out around the brake shoes. It is held in place by small tabs that are supposed to hug both sides of the caliper assembly. Those tabs are very weak and as the brake shoes wear out and move closer to the rotor, the bracket tends to move with them (instead of staying in place on the assembly). So you end up with the thin, brass plate scrubbing against the rotor just like the wear warning tab would (and makes the exact same noise). Since it is such a close clearance, you only hear the noise when the wheel is torqued, but it will get more common as the problem goes on. The fix is easy. Remove the brake shoes, move the bracket back into it's correct place, and bend the retaining tabs back down. (While I had it apart, I went ahead and trimmed down the brass with a Dremmel so it would have more room to shift without rubbing the rotor.) It seems that getting new pads does not fix the problem because you don't get a new bracket with the pads. You buy some time because the new pads are thicker, but the noise will come back as the pads wear down. -- I honestly wouldn't know, but mine did the same thing then at about 30,000 miles it stopped and hasn't ever happened again, but use to do it all the time at about 20-28,000 miles wierd huh You may have a broken cv joint i had the same problem in one of my old cars. behind the brake assembly theres a rubber boot with a rod coming out, if that boot tears and dust gets inside it ruins the ball bearing joint..
possible . \n. \n. \n. \nThe brake shoes may be about worn out. The wheel bearings need grease
Why does the driver's side front wheel squeak when you're driving and immediately stop when you brake?
Because your brakes, when applied, "straiten" the rotor (disk) from a cockeyed angle. To put it simply, your wheel bearings are worn and while driving, the rotor, wheel and ti…re are at a slight angle. The "wear indicators" (a small piece of metal attached to the pads on the top) built into the brake pads are temporarily rubbing against the rotor. When you apply the brake, it temporarily returns the group back to where is should be as if it were new, stopping the indicators from touching the rotor. Thought i should add that if your wheel stops squeaking when you depress the pedal it is usually a sign of ball-bearing wear. The wheel will squeak through braking if the brakes are done, or worn.
Why does the right front wheel squeak at a certain point each rotation particularly when turning right on a '93 metro Turning it doesn't make this noise when turning left?
you should stop driving this vehichle until it is fixed or resolved. You most likely are experiancing the arm support rusting out on the passanger side of car. Very common for… these vehichles. It is getting ready to break. This is why it sqeaks. it is moveing. If this breaks while you are driving 30 - 45 - 55 or at any speed. You have NO control and are going to crash into whatever is in your way. I would seriously stop driving it. This happened to me, I was fortunate I was doing 5 mph while turning off highway. I was able to weld it all back up, and is a daily driver.. Dont chance it, get it fixed.
What is causing a squeaking noise at low speed on a front wheel at low speed knowing that the brakes are find and the noise occurs when turning the wheel by hand?
Its Your CV Joint Or Your Wheel Bearing ........... if it is your cv joint you will hear the knocking or clicking sound especially whilst turning corners.xxxx
This could be a number of things. If the sqeeking happens when braking, then you probably need brakes. If it happens while driving, accelerating and turning then it could be t…he belt that is making noise. This can be due to a loose belt, worn tensioner or power steering fluid low or power steering issue.
What causes the front brakes to enter anti-lock mode when the vehicle is almost stopped and the wheels are turned to the right or left?
more than likely a bad wheel speed sensor
Check the rotor, it's probably warped.
Bad brake pads (wear indicator rubbing rotor), brake pads not retracting and rubbing rotor, or bad wheel bearings. You need to have this looked at before possible great damage… is done.

Most likely it is low power steering fluid. Check fluid and see if noise goes away.

Why does my Jeep Wrangler front left wheel squeak when in motion only when the wheel is turned to either right or left even just a little and it is not the brakes?
could be a bearing? were the brakes inspected very closely? it sounds like a feeler tab on a brake pad is just touching the rotor barely. This can happen even though the brake…s are say 30% visually estimated remaining. Spin the LF wheel as hard as you can with it up on a jack and see if you can hear the noise. If the noise is in the rotating moving assembly for sure.... That's bearing or brakes! Unless the squeak you are describing is a dry front end part like a ball joint.....Take it to a front end shop if nothing else is found wrong and pay the small diag fee to find out, then get 2 or 3 estimates. Ask about parts warranties too, don't let the cheap price fool you. Some parts are plastic inside and some a brass, lifetime warranty, the best. Also check the thin metal backing plate behind the rotor, it may be touching the rotor as it spins around, it should be about a pinky finger away from the back side of the rotor. Advise if you find more.

The squeaking is caused by friction between two objects that only contact each other during the turning motion of the car - in this case, in the leftward direction. This is an… easy fix - stop doing it.

could be the power steering belt, axle going bad. power steering pump it self could also be bad.

I been having this troublle for about 3 months it annoys me everytime I drive the van , the first thing in my mind is the brake pad, second the wheel hub. So bought this two p…arts before pulling down just in case. I take off the two bolts holding the caliper to get get access to the brake pad and try to clean it first, I notice that there are foreign particle in between the groove of the pad so I carefully cleaned two pad with the tip of a file, I assembled it and try to drive around and whalla no more squeaking. Could also be the brake "squealer" is telling you that the brake pads are worn down and in need of attention. Usually a sign that the "wear indicators" are rubbing against the rotor (as designed) to let you know that brake pads need replacement
