Passenger side?  Apart from funny one-liners about telling your wife to
get out if she is going to squeal every time you drift around those corners...

The most annoying squeal I had lately actually came from the clutch - my
fancy (and very wonderful) 'button' clutch. Every time I would
accelerate from a full stop, letting the clutch out would emit a squeal
that scared dogs and small children nearby.  It was embarrassing.  I was
told to just 'drive through it' and see if it went away, which it did
after a few weeks.

When does it squeal?  Are you changing gears?  Taking off or already
moving and accelerating?  All the time?
