What could this squeaking noise mean in my son's 2002 Sonata?

Asked by Jan 16, 2015 at 02:21 PM about the 2002 Hyundai Sonata GLS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The squeaking seems to be coming from the right tire when turning right or moving the
steering wheel a little bit to right or left but not when turning left.  Hitting the brakes
makes it worse.  The brakes seem to be working fine and car runs great otherwise.

1 Answer


Sounds like the brake pads are worn out and the wa t ning tab is hitting the rotor causing the noise.
