Bad wheel bearing or brake?
I have a 2003 Impala, and it recently developed an intermittent squeal/screech. The screeching is rhythmic and speeds up with the car's acceleration.
What makes this interesting is that the screeching goes away when I turn and comes back when straight.
Pressing the brakes has no effect on the screeching - it happens with or without them applied.
Lastly, I want to emphasize that the noise it not grinding like most wheel bearing noises. It almost sounds like a belt squeal.
Thanks! Let me know your thoughts and if you need any more information.
