Question about 1999 Jeep Cherokee

1 Answer

Brakes squeak numerous pads, new rotors, labor and within a few miles the squeaks come back. Dealers claim there is no problem. After talking to several owners of '99's, they all say the same thing--no one fixes the squeaks. We did hear a rumor that the only fix is to go to a newer style caliper. What year should we go to and is this "the fix" ?

Hi,
I have solved this problem on many occasions in my workshop.
Usually be squeaking is caused by vibration between pad backing plate and calipers.
The is a special paste available from auto parts suppliers to apply to the back of the brake pads (Only where they contact caliper piston and housing) Some OE manufacturers supply this with brake pads.
I have also used "Hi Temp Silicon Sealant" and this works just fine also.
All the best, MMP

Why does the back passenger wheel,sqaek when driving slowly


This could be a few things, depending upon the nature of the "squeak".
  1. It could be a simple case of brake pads rubbing slightly on the rotor, a common issue that occasionally results in squeaks.
  2. It could be that the wear indicator on the brake pad is rubbing the rotor, an indication that brake pads need replacement soon.
  3. Least likely is a wheel bearing that is showing signs of wearing out. This will get worse over time if it is the cause.

My brakes are squeaking


Remove brake pads..front. Deglaze discs and pads and use created on the back of the pads.
Discs must be grease free.
When installed and sensor fitted, ensure sliders are free before pumping brake pedal a few times.
Road test and remember to bedcin brakes again for 500 miles

New brakes squeaking


Poor quality brake pads or improper machining of the brake rotors is the common cause. Use factory OEM disk pads from the dealer, not the cheapest thing out there to avoid this type of problem with noise. Note the noise doesn't affect braking...

MY BACK BRAKES SQUICK


If is is a metal to metal squeak, you need new brake pads or shoes, which ever it uses.. It is now 8 and a set of brakes all around is most likely in order. If you do not drive it much, and it is not a metal to metal squeak, you need to get some anti squeak gunk squirted between the back of the pads and the caliper, and the rotors resurfaced. The labor to do this is the same as new brakes, so see above.

My front brakes squeak, I replaced the pads but the squeak is still there. These have squeaked for a long time?


There is an ongoing problem with squeaking front brakes on dodge rams and charger rt.From 2000 up to present Ihave been told dodge used cheap pads and rotors on a lot of there cars and trucks.I own a 2008 charger rt with 40000 miles and changed brake pads and rotors twice and they still squeak.i herd only remedy is to buy upgraded pads and rotors but these are much more expensive then stock parts.For now i am putting up with squeak till i get the extra money to get rid of noise.the brakes wont fail they just squeak.(I know very annoying)for now i just turn up radio a little louder LoL.But until dodge admits there using cheap ???? parts complaining to dealer didnt help.Good luck. PS A friend of mine put on slotted rotors and expensive pads and yes the still squeak.So mabye it has somthing to do with calipers but again dodge wont admit this.

After a couple visits to our local mechanics for brakes repair of a 2006 chevy siverado short bed reg cab. My rear brakes are the problem first the mechanics changed them out with premium pad then now...


Make sure the mechanic checked the park brake shoes inside the rear rotors, they quite often break away from the lining and get wedged in the rotor, sometimes causing a constant squeal noise. I've also seen the brake pad anti-rattle metal clips become loose and wander in the caliper bracket, they lightly rub against the rotor and cause a squealing noise similar to worn brake pads. They are also very bad for the backing plates rusting out prematurely and rubbing on the inside of the rotor. Other than that he can just try to champher the edges of both front and rear pads to help dissipate the brake dust, from collecting and causing squeak noises.

Please help....I replaced the front brake pads on my 07 Saturn Aura because there was a squeaking sound. I took the old pads off and there was plenty of meat left and the rotors look very good. I didnt...


check the dust shield that is behind the rotor. It should be attached to the steering knuckle. if it is bent and touching the rotor it will squeak. I would jack the passenger side of the car up and remove the wheel. Once you have done that try to spin the rotor. Try to get it to squeak. It may also be dirt on your brake pads. If it came back after a week it is most likely dirt. Try a couple cans of Braklean while you have it apart.

Squeaky noise when applying breaks


sometimes if they get a glaze effect they will glaze up causing squeaks. Are they very shiny? if so they are glazed. Also are they factory pads or aftermarket do you know? Metallic pads almost always will give off a little squeak. If you know how to take off wheel and caliper you can remove the rotors and bring them into parts store and they can turn them real quick for you for about 20-30 for both of them. Just do the fronts. if you say your pads are fine leave them alone and just reuse them. This will help renew the brakes alittle but when you do replace pads in future always replace rotors as well dont turn them with new pads. and if you can, go with ceramic pads. less likely to squeal but just for a few hundred miles untill break in is over.
