squeaking noise from front passenger wheel

Hey guys,

So I am hearing a prominant squeak from my front passenger wheel area, I can only hear it at around 30mph when there is less road noise and on quiet streets with less traffic. Whatever it is, it starts to squeak and reacts to minor steering wheel adjustment.

I took the car to Chevy and they could not replicate the noise and found no problem with anything? I'm taking it back with the video to show them, but wanted some insight from you guys too.

I have uploaded a video if anyone could diagnose.

On a side note the service manager and advisors thought my car was heavily modified, its a bone stock 2015 1LE... They asked me about the wheels and the hood wrap and some other stuff... Just shows you how much they really know.

and yes i have sand in my seats from the beach.

Thank You

Your brake pads may be making contact with rotors on turns, because the wheel bearing has too much lateral play. Usually happens turning in one direction only. Is that your experience?

Take the mechanic for a ride if he can't find this noise himself, which is hard to believe. You may be getting the brush-off because they don't want to deal with your modified car.

And yes, if you have non-standard wheel offset or bigger tires, this can cause premature bearing wear, so they may try to refuse warranty coverage.

It happens going in a straight line, but the squeak changes pitch and sound level when I slightly move the steering wheel. The car is BONE STOCK, they obvioulsy don't know what a 1LE is.

Sounds like you need a new dealer, then.
