One is a "ringing" sorta noise coming from the turbo (noise continues for about 15 - 20 seconds after turning off the engine) and one is a "squeak" or "chirp" with every wheel rotation from one rear wheel... This only started when I got new brake pads. I took it back to the guys that installed the pads and they said it was a rock but the noise seems to be getting a bit louder each day. Doesnt matter whether the car is cold, warm or hot for either of the noises.
I have heard that it may be the bearings in the turbo and the rear bushes being dry/worn? Any opinions/suggestions?
Thanks in advance, Sam.

Squeak from the wheel stops when I touch the brake and is loudest when doing under 10km/h, like in a car park. The faster I go, the quieter it gets.

Anyone got any ideas on the squeaky wheel? I'd upload a recording of it, but this site won't let me.

I don't really want to go back to where I was last, as I am loosing confidence in them. I will not name and shame them, as I cannot confirm what the problems are at this stage, and if they are in any way responsible for them.

If you can pull the pads out and de-glaze them, so get some course sandpaper and give it a sand also take 1-2mm off the side all the way around on 45 degree angle
if not telly our local mechanic to de-glaze pads
