High pitched squealing from front right wheel....help?

I get a high pitched squealing that comes from my front right wheel that gets louder and increases in speed as I drive faster. It also goes away if I lightly tap the brakes

The squealing sounds like what performance brake pads sound like when you use them...

I haven't took the wheel off yet..but has anyone had something similar happen to them?

The "sensor" on your brake pads perhaps. Are they running thin?

your wear indicator is hitting the rotor.

time for new pads.

if when you tap the breaks the sound goes away it is your pads.

Yes, suspension should be first. I quote BMW by saying "Power is nothing without control"

Yep I just had that same noise on my right rear. All my friends said thats what it was, and I took it to the stealership and sure enough the pads had gone bye bye.

So I checked all 4 pads and they all have plenty of life left...

would rusty rotors cause it?

pull the other wheels & brakes. it may sound like the front and be the back. be sure.

rusty rotors can contribute to this, but usually they make a weird grinding noise when you are starting to slow down. also it may be that you got some defective pads. this happened to me. all the pads looked fine but when i changed the pads on the side that sqeeked the noise never came back. I would just check the rotors, make sure they are not worped, if they are fine change the pads, if they look iffy, change pads and rotors!

When you have the wheels off, rotate the spindle and see if that will replicate the sound. That way you can get your head in there and see where the sound is comming from.

Check your heatshields up front. I had bent on of mine at some point, and it was contacting the rotor and causing a squeeling sound.

nah not hte belts cuz the noise is tied to vehicle speed, not engine speed.

Oops..yeah I checked aLL the pads..and even spun all the wheels when in the air...i'll double check those heat shields...

it's an odd behavior though...3 months ago I didn't have this issue...then let the car sit for 3 months..and now...squeak squeak squeak...

I might just live with it and turn the radio up
