Did you put on any no squeek on the back of the pads if you did not you may have to take them back off and pick up a small package at a auto store.

97 Chevy S10 rear end squeek that goes away when brakes are applied


If you have rear disc brakes, one of the rotors could be warped and causing the pads to move in the caliper.
You should be able to remove one wheel at a time, lock down the rotor with the lug nuts, and put the trans in low gear or reverse to listen for the noise.

When i first start to drive my 2005 dodge neon the brakes squeek after about 2-3 times the brakes stop squeeking any ideas?


Probably just surface rust and or dust in drums if you have drums. Pretty common. Have had 2 Neons and both did the same. Especially after a damp night (dew) or rain, first few stops would squeek. Used to push pedal slightly when I first head out to clean them off and that seemed to help.

I have a 2001 Chevy Prism. My brakes have been squeeking a little bit and not catching until I almost hit the floor. I looked at the brake pads that are on there now, and they look fine. What else could it...


The brake pads need to be replaced asap. The squeal comes from a wire imbedded into the pad so that when you start hearing it, it indicates pad are worn out. New pad will bring the pedal bac up to its normal position. The back brakes are probably OK, but they should be checked as well for wear and leaks.

Brakes squeak


If you put the lifetime pads they are much harder and although you will get extended life the pads have a tendency to squeak try getting in a empty parking lot and put a little pressure on the brake pedal while backing up a few times it sometimes helps but is only temp, I prefer the non lifetime pads for this reason

2006 chevy silverado 1500 front brakes are squeeking


on disc brakes there is a metal marker on them that when the pads get low on material it will make a squeeling noise to let you know its time to change the pads.. so I would say you are in need of front pads also even though they look good you are getting low.. this marker is designed to let you know its time before you get to metal to metal .. jerry
