My car is making a noise and I'd like to know what's causing it!
My car started making a high pitched squeeling noise about 2 days ago, its coming from the drivers side in the front. It started off being just an occasional noise but now it is constant. My first thought was that it's the brakes, but I've never heard this sound before so I just want to find out what it could be. Any help would be welcome.
