Question about 2002 Audi A4
When I apply my breaks, a squeaky noise appears. My break pads are fine. Could it be down to dust???? How do I stop it???
A bit of rust may be inbeded in the pad or are they just cheep pads.

A FOREIGN OBJECT TRAPPED BETWEEN BRAKE DISC.........YOU COULD TRY PUTTING A LITTLE COPPER GREASE ON THE BACK OF THE PADS TO HELP WITH THE SQUEAKS...

Sometimes if they get a glaze effect they will glaze up causing squeaks. Are they very shiny? if so they are glazed. Also are they factory pads or aftermarket do you know? Metallic pads almost always will give off a little squeak. If you know how to take off wheel and caliper you can remove the rotors and bring them into parts store and they can turn them real quick for you for about 20-30 for both of them. Just do the fronts. if you say your pads are fine leave them alone and just reuse them. This will help renew the brakes alittle but when you do replace pads in future always replace rotors as well dont turn them with new pads. and if you can, go with ceramic pads. less likely to squeal but just for a few hundred miles untill break in is over.
