Ok, So I've got this REALLY odd squeak coming from my car. here's the symptoms:
1)only happens when the car is warm (like 15,20 minutes of normal driving).
2)It frmo the front left.
3)It's metallic (not a belt, I swear)
4)It will become evident when turning the wheel one way or the other, and then go away and come back.
5) Speed dependent (squeaksqueaksqueak)
6)it's NOT the brakes (I promise)
7)It sounds like some rotating mass contacting a non rotating mass at one point in its rotation (Squeak squeak squeak vs. SQUEEEEEEEEAKK)
8)It can get horffically loud.
9) there is NO feedback in the steering wheel when its squeaking, so I dont think its anything in the rack.
Basically I just took it to the stealer (yeah my bad I know) and they were like "oh its your rotors, replace them." SO I was like "ok, if it fixes it." got the car back last night. still there. Center Subrau in Torrington CT has a chance to make good on this yet, I'll let you know how the call goes.
Here's my thought, and chime in if you know what it is, or if you think i'm an idiot:
There's a dust shield that covers the ABS ring, it operates in an uberclose tolerance to the entire cast iron hub assembly, if that has become ganked in one place, it could orbit out of round, and you know that cast iron piece has got to flex a bit under normal driving conditions.
Thoughts?! (Sorry for the long post, but I wanted to make sure to eliminate as many things as possible)
