2013 Squeaking front rear well

There's a slight squeaking noise coming from the driver side wheel well and it sounds like every rotation of the tire it squeaks once. It happens at all speeds, in any gear, with the clutch engaged or disengaged, and if I'm in neutral. Its the loudest and it changes pitch once i start to get on the brakes or if im hardly on the brakes and once i press the brake pedal a little further down the squeaking goes away until i start moving again or let off the brake. It started the a day or two after the track, and the only thing i did was unbolt the sway bar. It's been like this for about 2 weeks and still hasnt gone away. I thought it could have been the brake pad but the car only has 9,000 miles on it. Any thoughts or ideas on what it could be? Thanks in advance

With 9k plus track use pads could be gone. Depends on how hard you use your brakes.

You might just be like one of us here: https://www.allfordmustangs.com/forum...on-normal.html , I do have that squeaking noise coming from the driver side wheel as well... The LCAs might need to be changed, but to this day, Ford hasn't resolved the problem... (They've been redoing these parts 3 times already, and the problem remains...)

Thanks for the response.. have you had any luck with making the noise go away by replacing the bushings or lca?

Hi Baysixx,

I’d like to escalate this to the customer service manager of your area and help get it resolved. Please make an appointment with your Ford dealer and PM me with your VIN, dealer, mileage, full name, and best daytime number.

My dealership replaced my LCAs and bushings with the newest parts, one day later the squeaks were back...

Regarding the LCA problem, I have similar experience. I had my dealer replaced all LCAs thi summer because of the front squeaking problem. But they are back again. I am going to take my stang to dealer for the 2nd time.

I don't know how should I survive this after warranty. It costs big money. parts, labor, and wheel alignment....

Should it be considered as design defect? I think Ford should definitely take the responsibility for this. They need find real solution to this rather than keeping on replacing same problematic parts until warranty expires.

My car is a 2012 vehicle.

I wasnt aware that it was this big of an issue. When they find it out i hope they do a recall on whatever it is. Has anyone that replaced the struts and shocks gotten rid of the squeaking with the aftermarket dampers?
