Default Squeak squeak squeak...

I haven't yet pulled the brakes off to see how badly the pads are worn.. but before I do, I thought I'd ask wat OTHER possible things could cause my brakes to squeak ( mostly passenger side front )

When I apply brakes.. no squeak or sound
when turnin at lower speed it squeaks..

I've been told that it could be just bi-metallic crap on rotor/pad and to not worry bout it.. wat else can it be?

Either you are in need of brakes or you have compound like stated on them. Also called glazing. Try a few more spirited stops during a day or two and see if it goes away.

I doubt it'* a wheel bearing.

It better not be the wheel bearings.. had them changed in March..

Went to the drive thru car wash.. sprayed liberally Eagle one rim and tire cleaner.. it seems to have quiet down.. so maybe it'* glazed? So a few hard spirited stops should remove glaze??
