After driving for 10-15 mins the car develops a squeak from the drivers front side wheel.Seems to get louder the more u drive, obviously u can only hear it at low speeds.
It is going in tomorrow to be looked at, but any ideas? Only done like 1200 miles.

Well they rang today and said they can't just get the bearing part and the whole things needs replacing - Sommit to do with the intermediate Shaft?
Going to cost like £800 - obviously covered by warranty!
Needs to be in for three days in April!

A wheel bearing usually gives you a constant groaning noise when driving, it doesn't usually squeak. The intermediate shaft connects the steering wheel to the steering rack, not the wheel bearing iirc.
I wonder if its a CV joint or similar.
