Did you put the metal spacer plates on and did you use anti squeal on the back of the plates? if not that will cause a squeal. Also using ceramic brakes will do the same thing. and Ceramic brakes has to be slammed on very hard from about 20 miles per hour to get them to set it, even if everything else is done.

Why am i hearing a whistling noise coming from my front wheel?


It could be what is called the squeal warning on the front disc brake pads. If so, it indicates the pads are worn to the point that they should be replaced before they begin to do damage to the rotors. Pretty easy for someone who knows how to jack the car up, remove the wheel and take a look how much brake pad is left.

Hyundai accent 2005 when starting up the vechile and driving there is a constant ugly sound coming from the front passenger side wheel and when applying the brakes on there is a high pitch squeel


That screeching sound is a warning that your brake pads are worn down to the point where they should be immediately replaced. If you do not replace the pads, you'll score the rotor and incur an additional expense. Remember to replace the brake pads on both sides, i.e., driver and passenger side.

Squeeling noise in one of the wheels on a 2007 Dodge Durango.


If its a lite squeel and goes away when brakes are applied. Have you had front brakes put on recently. If you have and the rotors were not replaced and turned. Alot of mechanics don't do the final cross hatching on the rotors when they are done turning. This will barke in the pads wrong and cause this even with expensive pads. It will cause premature glazing and have a squeel that will drive you crazy.

it could be your brakes , on most brakes there is a wear tab that makes a high pitched squeeling noise when it contacts the rotor. this is in place to let you know your brakes are due for replacement. if it is not your brakes then it could be a wheel bearing.

I may need to replace the front wheel bearing. There is a squeeling sound coming from the front right side of the car.


Normally a squeeling noise coming from the front wheel area would be the front brake disk pads getting too low. Normally when wheel bearings start to fail the noise they produce is more consistant which a growl noise.

check that you havent bent the baking plate behind rotor or drum that it is just touching the disc rotor and any anti rattle clips on brake caliper that they are fitted correctly.
