hi, for a few weeks now my rear passenger side wheel has been making a really loud squealing noise when i go round a sharpish left hand bend. as soon as i straighten up it stops!

it sounds like 2 bits of metal rubbing together to make a loud squealing noise.

i would have thought it would have been the opposite but it only does it going round a left hand bend when the weight is on the drivers side.

please help :)

In my experience its one of two things.

A piece of gravel stuck between the the disc back plate/disc/caliper

or more likely the pad wear indicators, mine did it on cornering and on inspection my pads had reached their limit

Had the same thing for a couple of days, and already had some pads ordered, when I took the calipers off there was literally none of my EBC Greenstuff left! After I rpelaced the pads the issue stopped, just caught the pads in time before they ruined the discs with horrible score marks.
