It sounds like the caliper slides themselves are sticking, remove your caliper and check that the caliper slides are lubricated and that the caliper slides easily on them

How to stop parking brake on driver side from squeaking


on the pads/shoes should be coating of anti squeal. It comes usually with new sets. Make sure that the hardware is flat so it won't rub on the rotor. If rubbing it will be missing the paint.

My brakes are scrubbing and antilock light comes on, also when ever i back up, my front left wheel makes a very loud noise. kind of like rubbing metal. whats wrong?


the noise is probably the ware sensors on the brake pads making noise the noise lets you know that the brakes are getting thin are are ready to be replaced.if you let this go to long you can damage the brake rotors, make sure you check to make sure the caliper is not sticking on the left side being this side is making more noise ,a stuck caliper can cause premature brake pads ware .

Check the dust shield on the brake rotor's. There known to warp due to the heat of the brakes and will rub against the brake rotors or rim it self. Good luck and hope this helps, the other thing to that would create the squeak is low brake pads indicators rubbing against the rotors and it's time for new brake pads.

Front end squeaking possible rotor rubbing something.


Have you checked the metal clips that olds the brake pads in the front galiper bracket. They usualy rust, break loose and come in contact whit the disc, creating a squeaking noise. Those should be replace since they are needed for the brakes to work properly

Front brake pads for 1997 ford ecscort encore


The binding of the brakes is causing the pads to overheat, which is causing the smoke. You need pull the wheel and check things out. Your caliper must be bad (not releasing). You need to replace the caliper, brake pads, and have the rotor cut (a full service parts store or shop cuts the rotor perfectly smooth on both sides), or replaced (it may be cheaper to just buy a new rotor). You should also always change the pads (and check everything else) on the opposite side. So, if u do the brakes on the driver side front, always do the front pass. side at the same time, likewise if u do rear brakes.
Whenever you do brakes u should also flush out the brake lines (by bleeding the brakes) until the brake fluid flows absolutely clear. Old brake fluid is the #1 reason for caliper failure. I've seen many times people replace brake components w/out changing the brake fluid, only to have the brakes wear out very quickly, or not function properly. good luck! hope this helps> please rate this!couontrycurt0
