    So I have an odd hissing noise from underneath of the steering wheel (back of engine bay area, around front left wheel as well) that is for certain having to do with the break. I have been driving the car for about a year and I am not sure if it has always been there or if it's something new. Sound after breaking: https://photos.app.goo.gl/KNy5aLm7MnQFi8HPA

    sounds like a tire leak. i wonder if it is the brake actuator. is it buzzing more than usual?
