Question about 1993 Honda Prelude
I have a '93 Honda prelude, and recently it has developed a strange squeak. It happens whenever I drive it, it doesn't seem to get worse when I go over speed bumps. I think it's getting worse too. It's coming from somewhere near the front left wheel.
Can you describe the squeak?
Does it happen more when you turn a certain direction?
Try just pushing down on the front left of your car and let it bounce up and down, does it squeak?
I would say its probably mounts, there are usually rubber stoppers on shocks, mounts, well just about everything in suspension has a rubber bushing or stopper to reduce noise and rattling, they may squeak from time to time.
Check your shock absorbers for leaks, look for loose bolts on the suspension and steering components. If you think it may be a rubber bushing, you can get a can of dressing for belt squeals and spray down the bushings, this will eliminate the bushings being the problem.
If it is constant, all the time, whenever you drive it. It could be a fan belt or a timing belt (if the front of your engine is on the left side [assuming you have a transversely mounted engine / front wheel drive])
Check the tension on the belt maybe it is loose.
Hope this is helpful to you.

It could probabely be the brake pads ,some cars have worning light come on and others have this little projection of steel piece working as warning tht the pads needs replacement.
Remove the front wheel andyou will be able to see the brake calipers and the pads.
