If it's been a while since your last brake job then the brake pads are likely down to the wear sensor. It's a metal tab located such that when the brake pad is worn to a certain point it makes contact with the rotor creating the squeal or chatter that you hear. In other words, it's doing its job by telling you that it's time for brake service.

Squealing noises are more apt to be from belts, not mechanical parts. It doesn't necessarily have to be "a belt" per se, as the noise could, in part, be caused by an idler pulley. Open the hood and try to locate the sound. FYI I have posted the complete 2004 Forenza Service manual on FIXYA. Do a site search with those key words.

Squealing noise coming from the front wheels, only does it when slowing down and after it's ran a few km


Get your brake pads replaced soon. Sounds like to me the squealers are starting to make noise. That is the indication signal to change the brake pads. Depending on how many KMS or MILES that are on your vehicle the drums & rotters may need attention.

Most likely need to replace you accessory drive belt. However, before you do that make sure the tensioner is bringing adequate pressure to bear on the belt. The squealing is probably the side of the belt slipping in the metal drive pulleys.
