  • Front left squeak

    Hey guys. I have a small but persistent squeak that I’m trying to identify the source of.

    theres a squeak somewhere in the front left of the car that only begins after longish drivers (1 hr or so) and while the car is moving (suspension/brakes don’t seem to be related)

    any ideas or similar experiences?

    I've got a similar thing sometimes, also from the front left on my 2018 Prado GX. Although, I would describe it as a continuous squeal. Braking or accelerating usually stops the squeal. I figured that it is a small stone or dirt in the brakes (between the rotor and dust shield?). It usually goes away after a while. I've tried reversing to try and dislodge the stones/dirt, and I think that has worked. I guess taking off the wheel and inspecting/cleaning could help too.

      Could it be the seal in the exhaust join around that area? There are discussions on this in other threads.

          I had my head under there the other day and didn't notice anything - but not exactly sure what im looking for. It's definitely possible though, only present (or more prevalent) at low revs and once the engine warms up, doesn't seem to be braking/suspension related. The only thing that doesn't support this would be the left hand side origin? The exhaust runs under the drivers seat.

            The other factor that goes against the exhaust is I have an aftermarket redback exhaust fitted.
