Default Odd noise coming from right hand wheels...

Hello from UK!

I've recently bought my first PT and love it. It's 12 years old, only done 55k and is in very good condition. I've noticed the last few journeys she's making a creaking/squeaking which speeds up and slows according to how fast I'm going, coming from the front right wheel.

Tiny bit of a grind when you break and turn (I.e coming to a stop when your manoeuvring...) just wanted a laymans idea of what to expect before I go to a garage-I don't like to think garages are dishonest, but sometimes they see a blonde walk in and think they could charge the earth!!!

Hello- It could be a lot of things-

If it's been sitting, a bit of rust on rotors / drums will make that noise-
It's best to jack it up, try to spinning wheel's and re-create sound.

Take cell phone pics of exactly what they say it is and post them-

Sounds like squeaker on the brake pads or worse. Time to change the pads if it's not into the roter. My best guess.
