HBB- hydralic brake booster
there was a recall for that - check you local dealer with VIN. I had the same thing, but somehow mine didn't fall under that even though the symptoms were as described by recall - as soon as you touch brake pedal it chirps. some metal baffle inside corroded and it's loosing the pressure
i ended up paying dealership $300 part and labour about 3-4 hrs.

worn out brake pads and slightly warped rotors. Most brake pads have small steel tabs that touch the rotor at a 90 degree angle when it is time for replacement. if you keep driving on the worn pads, it will stop chirping but that just means the tabs (also called wear indicators) have broken off and repair is about to get very pricey.

I have the same 'chirping' noise on a 2002 Montero. And NO, it's not brake pads. The noise is there when the vehicle is NOT in motion. It makes that noise when you depress the brake pedal even with the motor not running.
Driving down the road, you can travel miles and never hear the noise until you put on the brakes. But you don't necessarily have to depress the brake for the noise to happen. It's like a sequence of 4-5 chirps in a row. There is no pulsing in the brakes like the ABS is operating. But the noise is directly in the vicinity of the ABS pump.
