Lol, oh come on now. I'm not psychic. Usually constant brake squealing is an indication that there is a brake related problem and will require a repair. I have seen seldom that a vehicle will pick-up a small rock and it will cause the sound. The brakes will still need to be inspected and if there is something there then it will be removed and all is well. But if not then the mechanic will need to find out what is causing your brake problem. Common problems can be defective caliper sliders, brake caliper, or brake pads have rusted to the bracket that holds them and are not releasing when the brakes are released.

Makes squealing noise (tyres?)


Most commonly, that sound would be coming from your brakes. Have you had them checked or replaced recently?

Brakes will squeal if they get worn down too far and require brake pad replacement. Sometimes they will squeal in perfectly harmless condition such as when they get wet, which should clear up quickly as they dry, or if they experience too much vibration. New brake will also sometimes come with either gaskets, metal clips, or a sort of anti-vibration grease or putty to reduce squealing from harmless vibration.
In any case, I would recomend having somebody knowledgable (or service center) check the brake pads for wear and replace if neccessary.

On more rare occassions, the squealing could be coming from other sources such as being in need of chassis lubrication, axle grease, and so forth. Most more serious mechanical wear or failure would sound more like a grinding noise.

2002 dodge durango 2wd. brakes squeal when braking. i have had rotors and pads replaced.


There are 3 to 4 different compositions of brake pads--some are softer--others are ceramic or metallic---probably you have gotten metallic---which do have a history of squealing much of the time. therefore, check to see if that is what you purchased--if so--there is no mechanical problem. However--a tip--especially in colder, salt-using, (on streets)climates. Lubricate the brake rotor sliders with grease twice a year so they don't stick.

Brake squeal


You, Probably will, Brake Squeal is NOT a new problem.
Disc brake's have been Squealing since, They, became
factory installed on chevrolet in 1971. Before, that they,
were a option. In 72 they even had a bulleton how, to
FIX it. And, no it didn't work.
With That said, Any time you replace Brake pads you,
should always re-surface the Rotors.
Why? First you may start to notice a pulsation as the
pads ware (sometimes! ) The best way to avoid, brake
squeal is to manchine the Rotors put, the blue membrain
sealent on the back side of the pads. And hope that works!!
Some brakes Pads squeal JUST SQUEAL??
You, Could do the same Brake job the same as you did
this one and, they may NOT Squeal.WHY, I WISH I NEW. They
sell all types of STUFF to stop Brake noice DON'T waste your $$.

Constant squeal in brakes,


Front or rear brakes?
Make sure the rotor isn't contacting the backing dust plate.
Make sure the brake pad slider clip/clips are not contacting the rotor.

When backing up and sometimes turning right my brakes(?) make a squealing sound. Almost as though a pebble is caught and grinding on something. Honda 2004 accord-50.000miles. I was told I needed new brakes...


Your rear brake pads are most likely worn to the wear indicator which can make a high pitch squealing noise. It is very common that it will squeal when backing up, but not when applying the brakes. 50,000 miles is about the average life for rear brake pads on your car.
