Annoying squeeling from wheel.

Hi peeps,

Am a bit new to this 166 stuff, just bought one a few days ago, am very happy with it, but the front right wheel seems to have developed an annoying squeel after driving for about five mins. It goes when I break and sometimes when I go round corners.
I thought it was a breakpad squeeler, but the front breaks dont seem to have those. It doesnt sound like a wheel bearing either, too squeely for that in my experience.

Does anybody have any idea what this may be? Its driving me mad and I hate spening money on mechanics.

Re: Annoying squeeling from wheel.

at a guess it will either be the pads binding slightly or the disc shield....

Wheel bearing...
Had it in the old 166 and now again in the Spider.
