Is the squeaking coming from all the brakes or does it seem to be coming from one particular wheel? If the sound seems to be coming from one particular wheel area, I would check to see if a caliper is sticking and causing brake drag. Sometimes the piston in a caliper can get stuck or misaligned where it can't move in and out straight and can cause this type problem. Applying grease is not a good idea. You don't want to get the brake pads contaminated with grease, brake fluid, or any lubricant that will affect the braking potential of the vehicle. Sure hope this helps and bet wishes.

Try spraying the calipers and pads with brake clean usually the squek is from brake dust build up. The caliper slides are the only places where high temp. synthetic caliper grease is used try that as well.

What could be causing the squeeking in front driverside when applying the brakes to stop at a stop sign or to slow down for a turn


it could be sand or a rock but more than likely the brakes are wore down to where the wear indicator (a little metal tab on the caliper) is rubbing. its letting you know its about time for new brakes. try to bleed the brakes and if that don't work, you may have to replace the brake pads. good luck.

My 2000 Dodge caravan's brakes are screeching after I changed them. Its only been 2 months since I changed them and its becoming very annoying. Changed the brakes and brake pads.


did you apply the brake pad anti squeal grease it should be applied generously to back of brake pads & also where brake calipers where brake pads will travel as they wear in some cases hard lifetime brake pads usually bmw/other german vehicles will simply squeal unless you install softer &wont last as long but im sure that brake grease will solve your noise issue you should have got a small tube where you purchased the brake pads !

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.

Changing brakes and rotors


Yes, these brakes are basically the same, some do require that you twist the pistons counterclockwise as you push them back into the calipers. I found that with a good pair of needlenose & just a little pressure while twisting they always go back in to the bottom.
Never bad to pick up a Haynes manual for a few bucks when getting your parts, or at least get the torque specs. The manual offers illustrations & torque specs for reassembly of everything. I checked & it appears you have rotors that are removeable once the calipers & supports are removed. Good luck

My 2003 Lincoln had new brakes and rotors 6 months ago - now, i notice a squeek when I apply the brakes - also, on snow when lightly braking, my brake pedal pushes itself against my foot in an up and down...


if you had brakes and rotors 6 months ago,did you do just front or just rear?
if you did front and squeal is in front,the new pads got hot and it glazed them,but the rotors are you pulsating pedal,are you sure they did rotors and pads?
there is no way this should be happening in 6 months.

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
