as stated, somehow the left rear brake has started squeeling when turning left. and sometimes its squeels really light when going normal even when at 50MP/h
not all the time though.

but when i park and compare the temperature of the rims and air and brakes round the car the squeeler is WAY hotter then the other ones, the stealer told me a few weeks ago that they are getting low, but is this the thing that should happen when they are worn? braking power is normal and no weird sounds occur.

Mine are the same back left but mainly After it's been driven hard. I was thinking about an all round disk and pad change / upgrade at the same time so I would be interested in bearing other peoples opinions on this issue??

I had the same problem. Sometimes there was no noise and heat then other times (less than 1 in 5 occassions) the noise was penetrating and the radiated heat meant you couldn't go near the wheel at all!

For the first time in my life I removed the caliper - had real trouble removing the pads - cleaned up the guides (caked with brake dust) and filed the edges of the pads that run in the guides. The pads had plenty of life left but inner had hardly worn at all. Suspect that the caliper was sticking. Has been fine in the last week.

ive just returned from my workaround, what i did was:
take the wheel off, and hammer the caliper, in my case a lot of dirt and brakedust clumps come down, then i cleaned it with a strong wheelcleaner with a very agressive formula against brake dust.
then put everthing back and made a testdrive, braking seems to go a bit smoother and the squeeking is gone, i did however notice that i had only 3-4 mm of brakingpad left on that side
