MK1 Clio Diesel; RH front wheel squeak!

Hi everyone,

My 1992 clio seems to be making a high pitched squeaking intermittently. I thought it was the brake pads grinding but the noise comes on by itself and goes away when I touch the brakes. Also when braking down a hill at high speed the car "shudders" slightly like something is wearing or not quite right. It also makes this noise when braking at low speed eg over speed bumps. Thats why I thought it was the brake pads wearing down, but its weird how it goes away if i tap the brakes, almost as though they are getting stuck or something.

Recently passed its MOT, the left hand wheel bearing was replaced, the right hand was supposedly ok.

Please help! Thanks heaps.

welcome to the forum. It may be the the pads are sticking in the carrier or you may have a warped disc.
