  • squeaking noise

    ive seen a lot of people mention about squeaky breaks .. but over the last 3 days ive notice a really loud squeaking noise coming from the front of the car .. only when im going really slow .. the squeak isnt constant tho but when its there its very lound :/ any suggestions? could it be something or nothing?

        A droning noise, mine made the Remus sound like a pansy in comparison.. Although It was truly gone lol, similar noise and crunching when u turn hard ie roundabouts. Although I wouldnt describe that as a squeak.
        No VXR
        Abarth and a 330e

            does it do it after pushing the car a little bit hard.

            Mine does it after a bit of a run - I get home - get out the car with the engine still running and some times its squeaking away.
            Corsa 1.6t - stage 1 with TMS and pre cat pipe, Regal astra sports clutch kit, EBC Turbo groove discs and yellow stuff pads - now gone

            New car - Astra 2.0 CDTI Sri with VX-Line kit, sat nav, 19 inch alloys, tinted windows

                there is a metal clips on each pad that lets you know when they are getting low you can see them with the wheel on the car just bend them back with a screw driver and you got a few hundred miles to get a new set

                  Another possible cause of the squeaking is the door shuts. These can make a noise when driving over bumpy/rough ground. Either lube them up with grease or get them replaced.
