Question about 2000 Dodge Neon
My neon makes a squeaking noise as you drive slowly. It is noticeable between 0km/hr - 40km/hr. Can't be heard at higher speeds. It goes away after a bit of driving, but comes back after the car has been parked for a few minutes or so.
Take the front wheels off and look between the brake scratch plate and the rotor. - a stone trapped there will cause this noise. Also between the driveshaft and the hub, where the shaft enters the hub at the back. l
Look too for either a support bracket for a brake line or ABS wiring touching the driveshaft. Also there is an antisqueal spring on the back of the brake calipers someotimes this will touch the outside of the brake rotor, you'll see a shiny mark on the rotor if something is touching. Also the scratch plate on the back of the rotor can touch the inside of the wheel rim, again look for a shiny mark all the way around the inside of the rim. Lastly look at the face of the brake rotor for a circular scratch - indicates a stone stuck in the brake pad. Have fun!
