    One(?) of my brakes has started squealing more and more recently. It's worse when the car is moving for the first time and is loud when braking of course. It also makes noise when turning right. I was thinking it may be the rear brakes needing a cleaning/adjustment.

    It didn't bother me before but it seems to be getting louder and more frequent so I want to put an end to it. Any info is appreciated!

    Thanks in advance!
