Anyone had this? And might know what the cure is?
My mileage is only low so they shouldn't need replacing. I've tried cleaning it with a jet wash in case it was dust or something like that.

There is a common fault requiring new front brake pads to be fitted. Your dealer should be well aware and order the pads accordingly.

We had this, very annoying noise indeed - but a quick fix.

Mine has had it for about 5 months had them looked at, was ok for a while then started again, hopefully when I pick it for tomorrow after a number of fixes it will have finally stopped.

Thanks all, I will get it booked in. Been doing my head in! Especially with the nice weather, having my windows down.

I had my brake pads changed a month ago but the squeaking returned, they looked at it when doing the 1st year service and have had to order a new caliper as it was bent.

My brakes are insanely squeeky, the car's 5 months old now but it's been squeeking since 2 months old. So embarrassing approaching junctions when anyone within 500m turn and stare to see what the noise is.

Is there a recall code for the brakes or is it just a case of arguing with the dealer?

No recall just go in. I first mentioned it where I bought it and they said they couldn't find the problem, eventually I took it to a fiat garage and they knew all about it as they had had a few in for the problem including one that day.
