Default 04 Sebring - Wheel Noise Diagnosis

Hello,

Lately, my 2004 Sebring has developed a
which is intermittent. It comes from the drivers side front wheel. canít tell if it is simply a brake issue or a bad wheel bearing. Applying the brake makes it a continuous sound. I wonder if anyone else has experienced a similar issue and what it turned out to be.

I took this video driving around in a parking lot.

Thank you, Pecos

Can't imagine what that noise is, it didn't sound like a squeak. It sounded like wind blowing over a microphone.
Diagnosing noises over the internet is practically impossible. Put the front end (both wheels) up on jack stands and give it a listen. While it's up you can have a good look at the brakes. If they're good, then it will probably be the wheel bearings. Shouldn't be surprising after 14 years.

If applying the brakes makes it continuous, the brakes are likely the problem. They may just ready for replacement.
Pull the wheel and check the pads.

Default The Diagnosis

It turns out the squeaking noise was the brakes. I had the brakes done at 73K miles about 10 years ago. Now with 104K miles it was time. They were at 10% needed new discs and pads. Of course, since I took it to Midas - I said nothing of the wheel bearings but turns out they wanted to replace the wheel bearings also, which they did - $780 all told. So the Noise was brakes- but wheel bearings were bad as well. Just not making noise, apparently.
