If in need pads are at 60% then more then likely its the type of pad. lower grade pads will make noise vs the higher end pads. some times you can take them off and sand them down a little, but that only works for a while

Why does my 1991 subaru squeaks then cuts out for a sec.


If it's happening while driving and no brakes applied it's probably a belt causing the noise. There's a product available in most local auto shops that you can use to lubricate the belt. I think the actual name is "stop squeak" but I'm not positive.
If it's squeaking while breaking you may need new breaks or your breaks may be too tight. Another product exists for breaking squeals available in your local auto shop

Squeak front wheel


depends on what type of pads are in if they are a hard pad they will squeak some times it depends on the weather if its damp a softer set of pads will stop from squeaking you could also try cleaning the rust away from the outer edge take wheel off then by hand turn disk use a spoon or a blunt pice of metal to scrape off the rust normally solves the problem also can try putting copper grease on the back of the pad so when you take your foot of the break pedal the grease sort of sucks the pad off the disk hope this makes sence chears ivan

Squeaking and grinding noise when I apply the brakes


Try replacing or resurfacing your rotors and brake hardware. Using brake pads similar to the oem will also help stop any problems.

My toyota corolla2005 rear right side wheel scrubing th tire when breaks


I would first check the break parts on that tire. remove the tire...making sure you take the precaution to chock the other tires and use an appropriate jack and proceed to removing the tire. Once the tire is down look at the the components for wear. Some break pads come equipped with a metal blade that once the pad wears out this metal plate comes in contact with the rotar or drum and makes a high pitch metal grind sound. This would be the indicator to change your pads and may possibly need to resurface your rotars or drums to spec. Let me know if that's what it was. GE.

What does squeaking sound while breaking mean?


it may mean nothing, squeaks from brakes area not uncommon. on the other hand, if the noise changes when you apply the brakes or if you just haevnt had the brakes inspected latley, it could be the wear indicator rubbing, this means the brakes are at the minimum thickness and should be replaced

When driving at speed i get a loud whine/shriek from rear driver side wheel, when breaks are applied noise goes. (disc ?) new discs fitted 3 years ago.


the brake pads have a wear indicator as the pads wear the indicator will tuch the brake rotor and make a high pitch shriek, so you need new brake pads.

Breaks have a high pitch squeal when i break ata any speed. got breaks checked out and mechanic saidneverything was fine


A high pitch squeal is typically normal. However I have NEVER liked it.

I would replace your brakes with a higher quality brake pad, and see if you still have the problem.


Your pads can squeal when they are getting low, i would also get a second opinion on the condition of the pads.

Im havin a brake problem with my truck and was wonderin if yall can give some guidance. The truck started out with a squeak in the brakes and I thought they just needed to be clean cause I just put new...


It seems the brake pads were incorrectly installed. or they tried to take advantage og you by installing only "some" of the pads. Take it back to them and inform them of your problem. there are cheaters out there as well as honest mechanics.

2003 Kia Sedona Ex. Squeaks when brakes


Most likely, there are metal peaces on the break pad, for when the pads get wore down to a certain point they rub the rotor to let you know its time for new breaks.
