Squeel in left frt axel or brake?

What is causing the squeel in the left front brake or axel in my 1995 Toyota Camry?

If it is your brakes, it could be from worn out brake pads. Have someone inspect them. I doubt that it is the axle. Squealing is not a typical axle noise.

Describe the problem better and that would make it more likely that someone can help. E.g. when does it squeal? Always? Only when first starting out? Only when coming to a stop? What kinds of things make it start and stop?

And as the previous post noted - the sound of axle problems generally isn’t squealing.
