Any recommendations are greatly appreciated
Maybe a stone lodged in the brake caliper and it has now gone (you reversed etc). Wheel bearing would be more of a grumbling and typically biased to turning one way
My experience of wheel bearings going is that the hum rather than squeal. If there is no obvious signs of wear on the disks and no significant heat build up on the wheel compared to the other front wheel I wouldn't be too worried about it. Even if it were a front wheel bearing it's highly unlikely to fail catastrophically as they are designed to fail safe and you'd know all about it long before it did and the wheel would be flopping around all over the shop.
thanks that had occurred to me too. Maybe nothing to worry about like you say fingers crossed.
Thanks for the advice if it doesn`t re appear within the next few weeks then I will probs just risk it and drive back.
