    Squeek from drivers side mostly after braking.

    Hej

    Can anyone give me their thoughts on this. I noticed high pitched squeek changing at speed after around 15 minutes driving and when mostly after applying the brakes. Had a checked out at the stealers and the identified that the rotors were gubbed. Chenged them with fresh mintex pads and discs, cleaned the crap off the calipers really well and applied high quality pad grease too and thought that had cured it. However, it's still there although this time it almost a different squeek but from the same side. Visulaly checked the cv and other joints and they all look good, and even tried to push back the rotor backing plate which is solid anyway....Am I looking at a faulty bearing?....I have had bearings go before on other cars and this does not sound like one. Also it doesn't happen over bumps and I can't feel it through the sterring wheel, so am thinking it a brake / caliper / bearing. The car is driving and handling well......which is all the more annoying. Anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks in advance,
    Allan
