Its possible the brake pads have worn down again, if they are and , obviously , you need to change them. Pay attention to the brake caliper pistons, check that they are not sticking or seized and also the caliper slider. Free off these parts. Hope that helps

Squealing at the right front wheel


The brake lining's have worn away, the squealing was metal to metal (worn pad against metal disc) The worn pad will have damaged the brake disc. Very dangerous. You will now have to have new brake pads and discs fitted to BOTH front wheels to put it right. Good luck

When i drive over 50k(australia) my front drivers wheel sqeaks and it does it too occasionally when i break. been happening for over 2 months so i rule out that its dirt in the breaks. what could it be...


wow first post ever for country, im GOBSMACKED !!!!
wheel ?steering wheel or tire/wheel.?

hard to find, they are, all squeaks.
first is to see if possible to do, no moving (big safety issue, yes)
bounce the corners of car hard, by hand.?
jack car up spin tires. by hand,
lever them below off ground, to see of balls are shot.
inspections here, look at every inch of suspenson and parts.

Brakes, i hope nothing breaks the brakes.
The brakes all squeak this is normal try lightly pressing the brake pedal, gently while moving slow, squeaking now is 100% normal and harmless. (the pads act like Guitar strings)
Use pad glue to halt it, or ignore it like me....
the pads have wear markers, they have this device that makes noise when pads get too thin, (look at em)
bad wheel bearings.
brake backing plate bent.
caliper guide pins rusted.
and lots of other things bad or just ok , old and making noise, like
suspension "A" arm bushing rusty, or stable bar , same.

moving noise is real hard to find.

Without hearing it i honestly couldnt say they could all be right and everything is worn out ,have you checked the brake pads for wear in case that is causing the noise like a worn brake disk (rotor) and as the pad wears down the metal on the pad backing is rubbing on the edge of the worn brake disk ?? take the wheel off and have a good look yourself

I replaced my front btake(both) 6 month ago when driving loud noise coming from the fronti can feel the brade pad grinding against the rotor when I turn


If you Failed to Tighten Any 1 of the Caliper Floater BOLTS and it Has Fallen Out This Will Cause the Noise you Discribe. Remove the Wheel from the SIDE YOU SUSPECT the NOISE is Coming From and INSPECT the Caliper and Pads, If the Bolts ARE there and Tight Check the Brake PADS and If they are Worn DOWN to Metal The Problem Is LIKEKY the Caliper Has SIEZED UP and Needs REPLACED along With Brake PADS and ROTOR.

My left front wheel squeeks until i press the break pedal


Most likely the brake shoe in that wheel is worn down to the rivets and those metal rivets are scraping on the drum. If you have a new brake shoe installed right away you will be ok. if you wait, you may also have to have the drums turned. By the way brake shoes come in pairs so they will change both front brake pads. Joe

Front right wheel bearing and break pads


Nope. 90% chance its your caliper pins. the caliper is required to float. When you remover the caliper by the two pins or whatever your application they require lube. if one is bent or seized the caliper wont float, the pads or pad will continue to wear because the caliper wont return to "neutral" location when the piston no longer has pressure on it. locate these pins and lubricate them with a graphite grease or something like lubriplate or similar. if the pins are bent remove them and replace. they're pretty cheap. good luck

It sounds like the rear calipers are bad. Raise the rear wheels and see if you can turn the tires. If you can't, open the bleeder. If you still can't replace the caliper. If you can turn the wheel after you open the bleeder, replace the brake hose to that wheel.

OCCASIONAL Metallic scraping noise - New ceramic brake pads.


You could be right with the wheel bearings. But first take the wheel off and check that nothing is scraping the rotor. Look all the way around the rotor. A suggestion will be that the brake pads have worn enough that the brake pad wear indicator is starting to scrape. Pry them back a little.
