Question about 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe
This high-pitched noise sounds to me like the right-front brake pads. They are most likely semi-metallic brake pads. You may want to remove the tyre and inspect the pads first for excessive wear. If they appear worn, of course, replace them. If they are not too worn, you may want to apply some disc brake anti-squeal spray to the backing plate of the outer brake pad. Another thing to consider, is to switch the pads out with ceramic pads. They last longer, are quiet, and don't create as much brake dust, especially if you have mag wheels that you're trying to keep clean.
Of course, without hearing the noise for myself, I can't EXACTLY determine the nature of it, but this is the first place I would look. Please let me know if you need any further assistance! :) -Jason
