Question Front end squeek

Getting a squeek from what seems to be the front end, somewhat hard to place the exact source. Is it possible the front wheel bearings need grease and does anyone know how to do this?

Any suggestions appreciated

Garage
Are you sure it is not the brake pad rubbing?

Or a cable?

Or a mouse taking a ride?

does it speed up with wheel speed? If it does, trial of elimination!

Rember the Tack is Electronic there is not a cable in it.
The squeek is from the mount.
