Default High pitched squeek, frnt drv side, only when turning right?

High pitched squeek, front drivers side, only when turning right?

Even when shimmying the wheel quickly back and forth. Again, only when moving the car to the right.

Stops when applying the brakes, not just touching the brakes, but returns when a slow speed is reached.

Sounds like the worn brake indicators check brakes. It may just be worn pads. I just replaced the pads on my RS and found extremly uneven wear. one side of the pad was only half worn the other side was down to the metal

Sidewayz I had that problem too.

OBSS check the splash guards that protect the rotor, I got a rock with tar on it stuck to that shield and it made a noise sometimes.

Take the wheel off if you can and check that area, thats most likely the problem.

I had that problem once, it was a rock between the rotor and the shield. I was in the middle of nowhere with no tools, so a little aggressive driving did the trick, but my car sounded like a friggin hooptie for about 20 minutes.

It's double friggin' hooptieQUA!

The good ole volume knob really cuts down on the noise

Thanks for all of the tips, tried them all except replace the brake pads.

Took off the wheel, no rocks/debris in the brake sheild.

Lugs nuts tight, not them.

I did a search on wheel bearings, they make a hum, not a squeek.

Anybody ever get a squeal/squeek from needing wheel bearings?

It's gotta be the brakes!

When I get brakes that squeak, I remove the caliper and pads and remove the slides that the pads move on, clean them with a
wire brush and put some special lube on them then put it all back together. Might not work for you. Stop by my job we can check it out.

wheel alignment, eh?

your tires may have worn unevenly, my dad's RS had the same problem on his rear right tire. He had the RE-92's then put on new tires and got an alignment and the sound went away...

it was odd though, he would turn left and the sound would go away when there was no pressure on the wheel
