Y my breaks make noise on the rear of my g35 2004

It's most probably the wear indicators on the brake pads. They make an irritating low pitched intermittent squeal or groan each time they contact the turning rotor. The noise goes away when you step on the brakes. Check the pad wear by pulling off a wheel and looking through the slot on the circumference of the caliper. You should have even wear on both pads, and at least an eighth of an inch of pad left. If not even you'll need to pull the caliper, and clean and lube the pins it slides on. If worn or uneven, replace them; it doesn't pay to try and wait for pads to wear down any farther, because you'll probably end up scoring the rotor.

Squeekking around back driver tire

Hello; The wear indicator on the brake pad may be contacting the rotor and making the noise. You need to remove the left rear wheel and look at the thickness of the brake pad. Thank you

My brakes make noise all the time

Pull the wheels(front first) check thicknes on brake pads. New pads have about 1/2"-5/8" of pad, if your's are around 1/4"-5/16" it's likely
the wear sensor is making the noise you hear. The sensor is a thin
piece of metal located on the end of the inside pad, it is designed to
rub the roter and make a squeeling sound to alert the driver that the
front brakes need service.
I will asume you have drum brakes on the rear, pull drum check the
shoes. Anything under 1/4" i would replace.It's always a good idea
to do both axels, unless one of them is new.
I don't know exactly what kind of sound you hear.If it's a grinding
not a squeaking, you may have waited to long, and it will be more
costly. The info. above will address the most common cause for your
problem, based on the info. you gave me. Hope this helps.
Good luck

How do u change rear break pads on a 1992 olds cutlass

Jack up the front end - SAFELY...
Put on jack stands & chalk the rear wheels..
Pull the tires off..
Disconect the calipers. Usually takes a allen wrench..
Pop out the old pads..
Before snapping the new ones in you need to open up the calipers..
So - open the master cap..
To open the caliper I use a sea clamp.. Set the seaclamp so the on end will be against the inner cylinder & the other part of clamp on the calipar housing or mount.. Force the cylinder into the calier & opening it.. This way the new pads will get over the roter..
Put the calipers back on & sucure well..
Repeat in rear if has rear disc..

That noise is probably your brake pads rubbing the rotor(s). Time to get them replaced before rotors are ruined.
