Re: New brakes squeal whilst turning

How did you solve this? Quick clean? What with? Brake cleaner or WD40 then some grease?

I think a disc, front left is slightly warped. Passed MOT but when slowly turning a tight right it sounds like it's rubbing (rapid squeaking, like rubber whep, whep, whep sound). When slowing in a straight line the sound is less obvious and more metallic but, from same source and with same frequency. Could this also be a bearing starting to go (as it just got through MOT fine)? No clicking, boots are fine. Just replaced all three engine/gearbox mounts which has helped a tiny bit, possibly just changed the way I was driving with better throttle and gear changes.
