Brake squeaking

Asked by Jun 11, 2017 at 08:10 PM about the 1998 Pontiac Sunfire 2 Dr SE Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 1998 Pontiac sunfire's left disc brake has been
on and off making a bad screech. There is a pile of
brake dust accumulating on one spoke of the
wheel, nowhere else, and the noise comes when I'm
going straight or left not when going right. Why is
this happening?

Sounds like it time to inspect the hardware and pads. Replace as needed.
