2007 GS350 Squeeky Brakes

Does anyone else have a problem with squeeky brakes on this AWD car? The dealer tells me they "can't do anything about it" because it's "been a problem with these GS 350s that Lexus has to fix." I have a $50k+ car that sounds like a clunker and I'm furious!

    Thanks, usersteve83, I'll try washing the brakes as you suggest -- I have to clean the hubcaps from all that dust weekly -- and I might just take you up on that suggestion of offering them back the car....

    newyorkwalk - you are not alone - I have the same issue and have complained repeatedly to my Lexus dealership. They are giving me no answers and I have started raising the issue to the point of turning in my car (leased). I am furious that they can not slove what appears to be an easy fix - there are hundreds of models of cars that don't have this same issue.

    Hi all...I have an 2007 GS 350 AWD too and I am the only owner..I have the same issue and just spoke to the dealer about it...they said that Lexus is aware of the issue and that they will have replacement pads coming in from Lexus in the "next few weeks" at which point they will call me and replace everything free of charge....keep your fingers crossed..hope that's all it is. I am in the Washington, DC area...just FYI, so call your dealer!

I had the same problem with squeaky brakes. Dealer provided pad replacement in February 09 which fixed it. Pads and service no charge.

Hi, I have a 2007 Lexus GS350 and after replacing the Xeon bulb the "Check Headlight" warning is still on, any idea how to reset? Thanks, Jeff


HI,
Looking online I'm not finding anything obvious.

Is it a 'Lexus' bulb? A specific bulb may be required to properly 'connect' w/the car's computer system.

Check your Owner's Manual and/or call the Dealer for more info.

How do I stop the squeeky brakes noise


If your pads or shoes don't need replacing you can buy anti squeek grease you apply. I use it on my vet

Squeeky brakes and tire maitanence light on. I only have 32000 miles on my 2009 murano.


first check your discs and pads to see if pads are worn down or there are any score marks on the disks, also the metal antivibration shims in front of the brake pads for wear and tear.check tyres for wear wrong tyre preasures/unballanced, and steering problems can cause exesive wear on tyres.

My bmw x5 has squeeky rear brakes ever since i renewed the pads, its driving me mad. any ideas?


Resurface the rotors, if not resurfaceable due to limited specifications then buy new rotors. If your pads are fairly new and no cracks are present then resurface the pads with sand paper or a power tool with a sanding disc. Make sure all is lubed with caliper grease, and cleaned prior with brake cleaner.

Squeeky brakes


how bad do they squeak, is this after a recent brake job? minor squeak is normal and doesn't affect the performance of the brakes, u can apply a product call "brake quiet" to the back of the disk brake pads, it really works, contact Napa auto parts to buy this.

When i drive i hear a squeeky sounds from my brake but when i apply brake i don't hear it anymore what could it be please


If the brake pads are thin you may be hearing the squealer ( a wear indicator built into the disc brake pad. When the pads are thin the squealer can contact the rotor reminding you to have the brakes checked

How do i fix a squeeky wheel, possibly bearing?


A bearing typically has more of grinding type of rumble rather than a squeek.

Try checking your brakes...the caliper may not be releasing completely. Cleaning them can solve the problem and prevent premature wear.
