Hello and welcome to just answer. I value your input so I may help you better. Can you pinpoint where the noise is coming from and describe it best as you can?

Squeking/grating from the front left tire

How long ago were the brakes checked ?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Very recently
Expert:  Peter Bagley replied 4 months ago.

ok did you look at the back side of that wheel to see if there is anything there that might have got picked up. turn the wheel all the way to the left and have a look and while your there make sure the thin metal backing plate is not close to the brake rotor.

Will do.

keep me posted.

Looks fine. I am concerned that my quick acceleration from the low "comfort" setting to the normal height position before it was settled, while moving, damaged something. You follow that thought?
Expert:  Peter Bagley replied 4 months ago.

I can't personaly see how that would effect it The only other thing I would do is take that wheel right off and recheck every thing around it especially that backing plate
