Re: 52 Scenic 1.6 intermittent squeak.. please help!

Welcome to the forum.

It does sound like the brakes.
The pads might be sticking slightly in the calipers and lightly rubbing on the discs all the time.
This can cause the squeel which dissappears when the pads are pressed harder against the disc.

A check for play in the wheel bearing and maybe a brake strip down sounds needed.

It could be front or rear brakes causing this.
Currently in lancs dave's garage:
Scenic 1.4ish 2002. Clio 1.2 2002. Thunderbird 885 1995, Suzuki Gsx600f 1989. Fazer 600 2002. Specialist cement mixer for proffessionals only, not yer average forum numpty. Your car is probably worth more than all that lot put together.
