    Default little squeak from left front wheel when turning left

    As titles says, i get a annoying sqeak from my front left wheel only when i turn left, my brakes r starting to squeak now but i put that down to needing new brake pads (16k miles without change).

    any ideas on the wheel squeak???

    Wheel bearing is more like a "weeering" sound

    I can hear a rubbing noise when only tuning right so maybe it's the same thing. Vauxhall always say they can't hear anything but theres defo something. See what they say to you.
