Chirp sound

Have a brand new Skoda Octavia, the last week occasionally a sound like a chirp comes from the front right wheel area when going over a pothole/bump, the obvious thing to do is take back to skoda but being the other side of Brum don't know whether its worth just giving it a check over to see if it's a simple fix, any ideas, never happens on smooth roads and only occasionally happens on bumpy areas

Sounds like squeaking rubber, give Skoda a call and explain see what they say.

Quite ironic but I did, it's almost a metallic sound though, to me it sounds like metal contacting each other for a split second, I'm just about to get the wheel off and see if there is anything obvious

Cheers mate I'll check that, to be honest I have noticed the sound since giving the wheels a thorough clean a couple of weeks ago, maybe my wheel brush has caught it

Would you say the brake line needs to be in that bracket?

Does look like there should be a U shaped rubber ‘bung’ fitted over the brake pipe and slotted into there…

What’s the other side like ?
