Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I have a squeak in the back brakes on one side which is in sink with the rotation of the wheel. Only started after the dealer replaced pads and rotors. Have taken it back 4 times and now they tell me it's a bent axel. Funny that. I have since taken it to a brake specialist and had all the cheap quality products replaced with good quality brakes but the squeak still remains. Please help.

Perhaps the dealer was right then about bent axle.

SOURCE: Back Wheel Squeaking - Rotors and Brakes

If it isn't the brake pad worn out, then it is the brake backing/dust guard sheet metal shield ( AKA backing plate), take a suitable device like a large screwdriver and bend the backing plate away from the rotor. Problem solved.

SOURCE: rear brakes (driver-side) squeal after replacing rotors and pads

you need to grease the metal clips at the top and bottom of the pads (dont get grease on the rotor or pad though) and also spray some "disc brake quiet" on the back of the pads. it comes in a red can and the spray that comes out is like sticky red paint. do those 2 things and the squeals will be gone.

SOURCE: how to replace brake pads & rotors

I have a 2006 Sequoia which should have the similar if not the exact same brake system. Changing the pad is very easy and straight forward. No special wrenth was involved. Easier than sedans since no worry to damage the brake fluid pipe.

How to replace front brake pads on a How to replace front brake pads on a 2000 Chevy S10 4WD pickup?


First you want to remove brake fluid from brake resovoir, raise front wheels off ground and set park brake or block rear wheels. Remove front wheels, keep steering wheel unlocked so you can turn rotors side to side. Loosen bolts that hold caliper end gently pry caliper free from rotor, remove caliper and remove pads, use bungy cord to hang caliper away from rotor, have rotors measured to see if they are thick enough to have machined, replace if out of specs. Match up pads with old ones, use anti- squeak red liquid and put layer on back of pads, let dry. Use tool to put pistons back into calipers, slowly put pistons back into bore while opening up bleeder screw so ABS won't be damaged. After rotors resurfaced, wash with rubbing alchohal to remove any oils from hands, install rotors and reverse putting pads back onto caliper and reinstall, torque caliper bolts to factory specs and tighten bleeder screws. Install wheels, torque lug nuts to factory specs and replace brake fluid in resovoir. Lower car carefully to ground and press brake peddle without pumping it. Any air in system should bleed out, if not get someone to help with bleeding system. Road test to ensure no squeaks or pulling, burn brakes in slowly.

I had a squeaking noise coming from the rear of my truck when i started to accelerate after braking at a stop sign i replaced the pads, go the rotors reglazed and replaced the drivers side rear caliper...


Sounds like a ujoint is frozen in the rear driveshaft.Remove the rear driveshaft(block the wheels so it does not roll on to you).check the joints,there should be no play and you should have very little resistance when rotating the joint.It is most likely the joint at the rear axle.

Do i need to replace front and back brake pads when they start squeaking?


You will need to inspect the brakes first, remove the wheels and check the thickness of the pads, if they are all wearing thin and the warning (squeak) indicators are touching yes replace them...

Please help....I replaced the front brake pads on my 07 Saturn Aura because there was a squeaking sound. I took the old pads off and there was plenty of meat left and the rotors look very good. I didnt...


check the dust shield that is behind the rotor. It should be attached to the steering knuckle. if it is bent and touching the rotor it will squeak. I would jack the passenger side of the car up and remove the wheel. Once you have done that try to spin the rotor. Try to get it to squeak. It may also be dirt on your brake pads. If it came back after a week it is most likely dirt. Try a couple cans of Braklean while you have it apart.

Renault Magane Authentique 2001 (Y)- Squeaky brakes and shaky front wheel. The brakes squeak often but not always and sometimes even squeak when brake pedal is released. Seems to squeak less or not at all...


What condition are the front disks in? is there a lip on the disks ? Now what i do when i get problems like this is to change the front pads for a good brand and not the cheapos ,also i get the hacksaw and cut a groove through the pad horizontal to the disk and this often cures the problem as for the rattle then blob of glue on the hubcap and renew the antiroll bar link rod if fitted or the bushes on the arm ,think this model has a link bar and not a bush direct onto the lower track control arm but hey iam a back street cowboy not a dealer (fit new) mechanic on one model only

A metallic squeaking sound from the front driver side wheel well


On your brake pads there is a wear indicator tab. This is a metal tab that protrudes just past where the brake lining almost ends. It is there as an indicator that your brake pads are nearing the end of their life cycle and it is time to change them.
