This could be the case as when you are turning the wheel to a sharp turn the caliper can slide on the caliper pins and put pressure on the pads.

Here is a guide that will help with this as there could be other causes:

If the brake pads are making this noise then they most likely need to be replaced.

Here is a guide that will help with this as well:

Below you will find the detail from the manual on how to do this as well.

I would suggest replacing the pads if they are low and then retest to see if the noise is still there.

Let me know if you have questions. Thanks
