    Default Vectra VXR Squeaking!

    Morning guys, my car is squeaking.
    Going forward and turning at low speed, high pitch squeal type sound. It did it a while back and I told Vauxhall when they did the service and they never heard it and to be fair I didn't either when I picked the car up but I covered another few hundred miles and it's started again, very loud, loud enough that everyone looks at you!
    Any ideas?
    It's just out of warranty as well. So an 09 with low mileage.
    Any advice is appreciated.

    Yes mate, when I changed my front discs and pads a few weeks back I prised the little covers behind the discs away as they tend to rub, no more noise, so worth a go, wheel off 2 second job.

    its a tiny little lip on the rear of the disc fella found this out when i changed the front discs and pads very recently, take the wheel off and turn on full lock its a tiny lip but makes a hell of a noise if its touching the disc. also check your power steering fluid level as well as low fluid can make it squeel as well.

    Do the wheels need to come off for this? Can I not just put full lock on and use a long thing ........

    Its easier with the wheel off I find as you can get better access to move it out the way but you can do it with the wheel on just more awkward
