Unhappy repetitive squeaking

...so i got a little issue.

whenever i drive i hear a series of repetitive squeaks from the driver side wheel/brake area. this happens when driving straight, and it is louder when i let go of the gas.
i took off the wheel/caliper/pads & cleaned them...wet away for a while and now its back.

anyone know what this could be ?

its driving me so crazy

ne 1 ?

It's probably the squeeler touching the brake rotor.

It's a tab on your brake pads to worn you that your fiction lining is low and becoming un-safe.

Okay, well then its not the squeeler.

Check: backing plates, wheel bearings, balljoints, all bushings, etc. A lot of things can squeek.

Does it go with the wheel? If so, it's probably a wheel bearing or the braking plate.

Might be dangerous depending on what the noise is.

Can you hear the squeek if you turn the wheel from lock to lock when the vehicle is parked? If so, its your lower balljoint.
