2003 FX 45 Hi Pitch Squeal when turning right or backing up only [SOLVED]

Postby ndgo88 » Thu Feb 16, 2017 11:53 am

Good Afternoon!
Need advice??
I have a 2003 Infiniti FX 45
I get a high pitched squeal when turning right or backing up. When turning right I get it when not braking? Any ideas what this could be?

Thanks!!

Any idea where the noise is coming from - front/back, right/left?
And what is the condition of your brakes?

Let's keep an eye on this thread, something might pan out of it. Otherwise, try some of the troubleshooting recommended in it and let us know what you find.

However, if you can record a video of it, that would helpful too.

Just a FYI-
The issue turned out to be a brake dust cover rubbing against the rotor.
