2006 S60: Car is squealing on driver side when turning right. I can hear rubbing noise at low speeds also on driver side. Possibly on P side as well
Steering fluid is fine: green appearance.
Rotors appear rusty could be rubbing on pads?
Already had steering boot lubed w no success.
Seems to have started after recently replacing all tires.

    SQUEALING NOISE CAN BE POSSIBLY DUE TO THE BRAKE METAL BACKING PLATE.SLIGHTLY TOUCHING THE ROTOR WHEN TURNING.AND WOULD NEED RE-ADJUSTING THE PLATE AWAY FROM THE ROTOR. BUT DEPENDING ON THE TYPE OF SQUEALING NOISE,CAN BE ANYTHING ,?IF YOU HAVE NONE VOLVO BRAKE PADS AND ROTORS THAT CAUSES ALOT OF SQUEAL ASWELL. MAKE SURE BRAKE CALIPER RETAINER SPRINGS ARE INSTALLED CORRECTLY,
