It sounds like your brakes squealing, have them check and grease the calipers (NOT THE PADS) LOL

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 don't calibrate on their own, therefore they make a squeaking sound when I break how do I fix it


Check rear brakes for:
1. Brake shoe (Cracked or distorted)
2. Installation bolt (Loose)
3. Rear brake drum (Scored)
4. Brake shoe (Dirty).
5. Brake shoe (Glazed)
6. Tension or return spring (Faulty)
7. Anti-squeal shim (Damaged)
8. Shoe hold down spring (Damaged).
6. Apply a thin layer of multipurpose grease on the area between the back plate and the brake shoes by slightly pulling off the shoes with the help of a screw driver.

Rear driver wheel has light reubbing noise when car in motion goes away when brakes are engaged. Is this brakes or barrings problem? Cost of repair?


hi this sounds like your brake pads have worn, or the brake shoes as well, if you have drum brakes on the back it will be shoes, if disk brakes will be pads+shoes (inside the disk) if it was the wheel bearing you would hear a loud humming noise not rubbing noise, is it a metallic rubbing noise or a rubber squeaking rubbing noise? just check condition of tyre on back if it is the squeaking rubber noise cost will depend on where you take it and if you do it yourself, possibly $40 to $50 at a garage/auto shop or possibly $20 to $30 if you do it yourself, this just depends ...hope this helps

Why does my 2004 Saturn Vue squeak constantly while I am driving straight and turning corners. I will say the squeak is a little quieter when taking curves. I have brought it in twice. Once to Saturn who...


If it is not your brakes, or your rear shoes, being so they have been replaced, you may have a wheel bearing bad in the rear, or you may have a caliper that is not releasing pressure on the slides causing the brake to drag just a little. I think sense it is coming from the rear of the vehicle i am going to lean towards it being a wheel bearing. One more thing you can try, push the emergency or parking brake on half way when you hear the squeak not enough to lock up the brakes but enough so the brakes touch the drum. If the squeak stops then your parking brakes are you culprit!

Suzuki Grand Vitara 1999:


Going by your description I think it could be something different, I would have the brake master cylinder checked, if you are suffering brake failure and shuddering it sounds like your callipers arent getting equal pressure when you apply the brakes. Or a freat lack of pressure to suffer brake failure. I hope this helps.
