Peugeot 106, 1998 - Unidentified squeak Sign In

OK - I have a 1.1 Peugeot 106 Zest 2. I've recently had clutch kit done(sat), brakes on front and back tightened, plates above front springs replaced. I know car still has a problem with CV Joint on left.

It has an unidentifiable squeak that I can't seem to get the mechanics to hear. This is what it does. OK - sounds like a vibration type squeak, only starts when car has been running for over 20 mins or so and thats moving not traffic. Car makes no noise when accelerator is pressed on, second I take foot off it starts. Gets worse if clutch is pressed, stops second car stops. It does seem to quieten for a few moments if wheels are turned. Have checked wheels are not hot when I stop (someone mentioned bearings/brakes). I have run out of ideas to try to solve this and work out what it is.

I'd appreciate any advice or suggestions as to other things to try.

"Gets worse when clutch is pressed"

You just had a clutch replaced a few days ago? Something with that part of the work done probably didn't go properly?

IDK what you mean by brakes being tightened. You can adjust drum style brakes usually those are found on rear wheels only. If you hear this then back when it will definitely do it and let the tech/mechanic test it out - go with the tech and point out when and what makes it happen,

Thanks for your reply - I'm going to give garage a call on route home tonight so they can hear the issue - it may be the clutch again just really disappointing as it had just been sorted. I wasn't sure whether the noise had turned in to clutch noise or been overshadowed by clutch noise if that makes sense.

I've had brakes checked a few times. Tech I've had out in the car once but it would not make any noise - seems to need to be doing some miles to get it to do it. Although if its clutch the 400 odd miles I have to do in the next few days will make it break and squeal again I'm sure.
