The best way, If you can afford it is to have the rotors turned, and sand the glaze off your pads, but if you can't have someone turn them then just try the sanding of the pads with 80- 100 grit sand paper.

    the cost varies from place to place but if you can take the rotors off the car and take them somwhere it will be cheaper. Probably around 15- 20 dollars a rotor.

When a rotor is brand new they are coated with keep from rusting...if you don't clean them before installing them it can lead to brake fade,glazing and or may have a caliper seizing up keep the brakes lightly applied good luck

On my 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee, As i break it squeaks when im coming to a stop. all my Breaks are new and i have Checked the break fluid its filled up, Why is this still happening??

The rotors are probably glazed. This happens over time. The rotors and drums need to be turned to take the glaze off. If you want to double check this out, then remove a wheel and take some steel wool or crocus cloth and rub the rotor until it's dull.Rub in the direction of travel. If you do one wheel it should diminish the squealing and you'll know for sure. Hope this helps.

Squeaking brakes

I recommend that you have the rotors reconditioned. The rotots are probably glazed from the old pads. Hope this helps.

Squeaky noise when applying breaks

semi-metallic pads can cause noise from glazing over if you are too rough on them, or a crappy pad composition. get some BG brand STOP SQUEAL and apply it to the pads. clears it right up

Squeaky noise when applying breaks

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.

Squeaky brake when cold

If your rear brakes are making the noise take off the rear drums and spray some brake clean in there on both shoes and the drum let all parts dry which wont take anywhere from 30 seconds to a minute or two depending on the brake clean also if you want you can have someone take a piece of emry cloth to your front rotors and scuff them up a bit with about 80 to 100 grit emry and spray them and the pads off with brake clean let it dry to you can emry the pads to this will get most if not all the glaze on pads and rotors.

If they are wearing down, they may squeak, and some brakes have a metallic part that will come in contact with the rotor when the wear gets to a certian point making an awful squeaking sound telling you that mabe you should change 'em soon, eh
