    Front Driver wheel squeaking

    Hi all

    Need some advice, please.

    I recently had a cv boot replaced and now when rolling back or moving forward slowly without applying breaks, I get a loud squeaking noise from that side.

    What could it possibly be, and can I fix it myself?


    Thanks.

    Check if the shield is rubbing the rotor maybe.

    Yup, and be sure to support the car securely.

    I'm having a similar problem. I've checked the CV shaft and for bearing play with the "Lever Pipe" Method. I'm curious to know from the OP. When does the wheel squeak, all the time or some of the time?

    Wsup, it only squeaks when I move very slowly.


    I jacked the car, took the wheel off but couldn't see anything.
