Hi,

This can be a few different things. When you hear it, is there anything that causes it to change in pitch, volume, or intensity? For example, does it change when you apply the brakes or make a turn? Does the squeak seem to change with speed?

Keep in mind, there is a brake sensor on the brake pads that is designed to touch the brake rotor when the pads need to be replaced. It will make a squeak or squeal sound when it touches. If you look at pic 1 below, I circled the sensor. Check through the wheel to see if it appears it could be touching.

Let me know as much as you can. Pay attention if there is anything that changes the sound. Also, if it is loud enough to record, please do so and upload it for me to hear.

Take care,

Joe
