Question about Renault 181
What condition are the front disks in? is there a lip on the disks ? Now what i do when i get problems like this is to change the front pads for a good brand and not the cheapos ,also i get the hacksaw and cut a groove through the pad horizontal to the disk and this often cures the problem as for the rattle then blob of glue on the hubcap and renew the antiroll bar link rod if fitted or the bushes on the arm ,think this model has a link bar and not a bush direct onto the lower track control arm but hey iam a back street cowboy not a dealer (fit new) mechanic on one model only

I had the same problem. I had the control arms repaced in the back when my car was still under warranty. See if a mechanic can take a look at it to be sure.

This is a head scratcher! My first thought is the rotors. They have an oil film that needs to be degreased before being installed. That may be only part of the prob! My guess is that you hit open road in a short time?? The grinding, jack each wheel and rotate by hand, have your helper gently apply the brakes,[just slightly], this should lead you to the prob. Also check for movement in the wheel bearings. Check that the dust shields are clearing the rotor. If all this fails, remove the wheels and check the inside of the rims for any wear marks. This may be ever so slight. This is the best I can come up with at this time! Frankster016

you need to change your brakes. they have squeaker tabs on them to let you know they are worn real low.

Testimonial: "thats what I thought, thanks"
1999 probably has a serpantine belt (multi grooved). I would guess that you may have a squeaky belt or more likley a bad bearing in on of the idler pulleys. Remove the belt and spin the idlers by hand. If one feels rough or makes noise replace it.

SOURCE: Squeaky steering wheel?
Try using some type of lubricant on the pass through on the fire wall. If you look down under the dash by the break peddle you will see where the steering shaft goes through the firewall. Get a litium grease to spray between the shaft and the rubber groumet that it goes through. Not a whole bunch but enough. spray it a little then trun the wheel back and forth then do it again.
This should solve the problem, If it's the noise that I have been encountering lots at work.
