Hi the first thing you need to check is the brakes if you can jack the car up and put it on stands you need to take the wheel off and check the brake pads and the disk, its sounds to me like the brake pads have wore right down to the bare metal and this is now cutting into the disk, if this is left to long it can seize the brakes on due to the heat and you wont be able to move the car.

also the brake pad if it is wore down to the metal then this will be cutting into the disk and then this will also need replacing. so go and check the brakes first as this is often the cause of any noise coming from the front wheels as that is the only major moving part.

if how ever the pads are ok and the disk not scored then the next problem you could have is with the wheel bearing but this ls less likely as it is more likely to be the brakes.

you can check the bearing by jacking the car up without undoing the wheel then grab the wheel either side and give it a wiggle and see if you can feel any play if you do then the problem could be either bearing or track rod end, if its the track rod end then this wont cause the noise you hear but it can cause the wheel to wobble.

let me know what you find or if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated page of unrated posts, thanks

Sounds like you need a wheel hub. Jack the car up then safely pull the tire with your hand on the top and bottom of it. If it moves at all you need a wheel hub, some will barely move at all.

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.

There is a high pitched squeel coming from the front of the car when we are moving

This is either a pulley squealing and needs lubrication, or a wheel bearing squeeling, but you will need to take a closer look at where the sound is coming from.

Whenever you turn the wheel to the left or right in four wheel drive it sounds as if the bottom is about to fall out of the truck. Fine in 2 wheel drive. And, it makes a general high pitched squeel when...

Have your transfer case clutch packed checked out, and you are supposed to change the transfer case fluid every 60K miles.

While you are at it, check your Universal Joints in the drive shaft, and your CV joints.
