aight guys and gals, see if you can help me out here. My left front wheel makes a horrible squeaking noise whenever I turn the wheel left. It doesn't happen when i turn the wheel right, and it doesn't happen when i'm braking. Any ideas?

Usually noises are caused by a wheel bearing or a worn brake pad.

The bearing noise would come from the right wheel during a left turn. Brake pad squeel would be all the time except for when you are braking.

I'd check the pads, it's easy to do. Are you sure that it's front the left front wheel?

Let us know what you find out. It's not a common problem.

positive its the left front... its prolly been goin on for the past 4 days.. just haven't thought much of it. but yeah, you can tell once you hang your head out the window that its the front left. How would I go about checking the brake pad, and what would I look for?
