Default 1992 Acura Vigor Question

I just bought this car and i really like it but i might have a problem
with it. When i back the car out of the driveway or i am moving
slowly forward i can hear a squealing of some sort. I think
it gets a little quieter when the car warms but i'm wondering what
that sound could be. I know i read a website on these cars and they
said something about wheels bearings being a common problem with
the vigor and was wondering if that could be it. The car has only
142,700 km's or about 87,000 miles, any help would be great.
Thanks Again!
Steve.

Steve,
Could be a number of things... like brake pads. They have little
squealers on them to indicate the end of their lives. Your calipers could
be stuck, or your ebrake cable could be seized. Where does this sound come
from?
Was the website you refer to:
www.acuravigorclub.com
?
Try the clubhouse link on that site to access the biggest vigor-user-group
on the net. Helpful guys.
HTH,
MR

It sounds like the noise is coming from the front, the ebrake cable
is fine so maybe just the front pads have to be changed.
Thanks for the reply.
Steve!
