Since you do not mention what kind of pads you used,after-market or dealer ones. I am assuming that you used after-market ones and that normally are hard ceramics --those pads plus if you did not have the rotors machined will squeek on you.Its the heat that glazes the rotors and pads.
Normally the dealer pads work pretty good as long as you do not have warped rotors.

Dear friend-what im about to tell you now will not be approved by my fellow experts but believe me it works.remove the disc pads and get your hands on some copper compound.put a thin layer of compound on the surface of the pad rub it in and then wipe light with a cloth,you can also put some of the compound on the back of the pad between the pad and the place,re-assemble and your squeek should be gone.

I have a 1990 honda accord ex 2door air in brakes.recently i replaced both claipers because the brakes wouldnt release, theyve since relased but the brake literally has no pressure the brake has to be


Your best bet is to bleed the entire system starting with the wheel farthest from the master cylinder, and working to the closest one.
Also, if you have drum brakes on the rear, make sure they are properly adjusted as poor adjustment will cause a "low" pedal.
The cap you refer to with wires is the resivour fluid level sensor, and the ring keeps fluid in and contaminants out.

Approx how long should the front and rear brake pads last on a 2009 Honda Accord EX? I'm up to 37,330 miles. I hear a squeak for a bit but it goes away when I'm almost to a stop. I had it checked...


First, brake pad life depends on your driving style. Drive hard, brake a lot and the pads won't last a long time. Second, the material of the pads can affect life too.
It wouldn't hurt to ask the dealership about the service bulletin on your car. If you are a DIY person, you could take it apart and inspect the pads/rotors and scuff them up a bit. I've fixed some minor annoying issues by doing that. Sometimes your pads can get glazed over, and I've had weird little bumps on my rotors that made a horrible grinding noise when coming to a stop. Used my grinder and cleaned/sanded the surface and it hasn't come back in 2 yrs.

The brakes squeek really badly?


Front or rear? Have they been replaced recently? Just a shot in the dark with what little information you've provided. If they haven't been serviced recently...The front pads are equipped with a small metal tab (sensor) as the pads become worn, the sensor comes into contact with the front rotor indicating they need replacing. If they have been serviced, the pads may be moving around slightly. There is a product called stop sequel that is applied to the back of the pads to stop this. If it's the rear shoes, then they probably need replacing as the rivets may be contacting the drums. Or, a spring or clip may have dislodged and should be looked at. I hope I've helped. If so please rate my assistance and leave a comment to assist others in a similar situation. Thank you and have a Happy Holiday.

1999 cadilac deville. when you driver over speed bumps,you hear a sqeeking noice as the car bounces. noice comes front front end. #2. air blower works but does not turn off. Madr a switch to turn off and...


Okay....hope this helps......

#1-Front end squeek is coming from a bushing in the front end suspension....could be the rubber on your struts/schocks, balljoint, or tie rod bushings. Have to jack the car front end and start from one side to the other...a little bit of a pain to pin point.

#2-The fan selector switch is bad....which means the control panel has to be replaced.

#3-Brakes....couple of things.....brake pads may have been installed incorrectly...not seated correctly in the caliper....

Have you hit anything recently or run over a parking block or run over a curb???

I have a 2001 Chevy Prism. My brakes have been squeeking a little bit and not catching until I almost hit the floor. I looked at the brake pads that are on there now, and they look fine. What else could it...


The brake pads need to be replaced asap. The squeal comes from a wire imbedded into the pad so that when you start hearing it, it indicates pad are worn out. New pad will bring the pedal bac up to its normal position. The back brakes are probably OK, but they should be checked as well for wear and leaks.

try a different brand of pads. Civics aren't the best at pads lasting a long time. you need to go with a semi-metallic pad such as the O'Reilley auto parts "BrakeBest" brand.

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

Have your brakes checked. It seems like your brake pads are extremely low.
