I did post this on another thread but nobody replyed so ill do it again here:

On saturday i went to newcastle, on the way into the journey my left/right front wheel statrted screaming, and when i pressed the brake pedal or turned the steering wheel the noise dissappeared, i now have like a strange clicking noise instead of the screaming noise.

Could this be a bearing or could it be brake related???

you won't know until you check under the car, turn the wheel and hear where the clicking comes from.

Could be Bearings or CV joint/gaiter. I'd be having the wheels off and taking a look at the brake system and hub componants too.

if it was the brakes the car would have steered in one direction or the other when the problem occured.

no it didnt do that either, it was a long journey could heat from the discs cause it to make a noise like that.

Can little stones get behind the calipers, or can it catch on something and make it click

Take it that's Newcastle on Tyne rather than Newcastle under Lyme?

Ok so it's not really relevant.......

My previous 420 (non abs) did something similar and it would come and go, sometimes squealed like a bearing was on the way out. Turned out to be the piston sticking in one of the calipers but not enough to affect the braking or steering although I suspect the disc was also slightly out of true.

The vehicle had solid discs and the calipers were silly money compared to the vented type so i took it off, cleaned everything up and carefully depressed the piston. Loads of copperslip between the piston and pad on reassembly and it didn't bother me again.

Worth a try?

I got a stone trapped between the rear o/s disc and the shield on the inside once. Made a hellish screamin noise, I bricked it cos I thought it was the bearin (and I was on hols 100miles from home), but on quick inspection, flicked the stone out and breathed a sigh of relief!!!
