    Squeaking coming from both wheels when steering, particularly at low speeds. Have bought the fluid to top up the power steering reservoir but cannot seem to find it and no info in the manual - anyone point me in the right direction or am I addressing the wrong issue anyway?

    Cheers,
    Euan

    Outside, particularly from the drivers side wheel.

    Is it a hopping sound, like the GLC issues?

    I’d double check the tightness of the wheel nuts (well, bolts technically) if you haven’t already done so.

    Any chance you can record the sound? Might be tyres setc.

    Turning the tyres on a smooth surface? Smooth/painted concrete or smooth new tarmac?

    Think you will have electric power steering, so no reservoir. Sorry can't help with the fault, though.

    Check you do not have a lip on the front Brake disc’s

    Turning the steering puts slight pressure on the brake hose, just enough to make the pads kiss the disc, if you have a lip on the disc it will be that rubbing on the pads

    Most likely the bottom ball joint. It is part of the lower arm. I've changed quite a few of these on w205 c class for this squeaking issue. Becoming very common.
