Depends on what type of pads are in if they are a hard pad they will squeak some times it depends on the weather if its damp a softer set of pads will stop from squeaking you could also try cleaning the rust away from the outer edge take wheel off then by hand turn disk use a spoon or a blunt pice of metal to scrape off the rust normally solves the problem also can try putting copper grease on the back of the pad so when you take your foot of the break pedal the grease sort of sucks the pad off the disk hope this makes sence chears ivan

SOURCE: A metalic noise related to the break pad comes

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

SOURCE: loud squeaky noise from front tires when turning and somtimes whe

Hi my name is Tom and I can help you.

Driving with your emergency brake on is only going to affect your rear brakes. There is a cable running from the emergency brake lever to your rear brakes.

You did not say how long you drove with the emergency brake on, but even a short distance and you forced the front brakes to do the work of stopping the car. This causes overuse which translates to heat. When the brakes over heat they "fade" and do not stop the car effectively.

In addition the heavy load of doing all the stopping causes the brakes not to realign. Therefore, when you go around corners the brakes pads will rub against the rotors.

I would suggest you get the brakes looked at or look at them yourself. I can help you do the job but I would need to talk to you directly. Let me know what I can do to help.

SOURCE: i had new pads installed on the front of my 2005

I personally never have had one braking issue, in 47 years
of doing brake work,on any vehicles

That said & not to write book here

The brake work & choice of friction material
(brake pads) was not done correctly

Very few shops remove rust from anything
Rotor mounting surfaces,wheel hub surfaces,
calipers,caliper sliding surfaces,pad siding surfaces

Then they use no lube, so pads can move & release

They don't use MFG Specific & quality pads

A proper professional job would go for at least
$300.00 for front or back,just 2 wheels

Rotor machining is critical

I think your OEM Rotors that were machined, most likely
were okey new & not a good grade of Chinese Steel to
be machining

I recently took my car into garage to have the wheel bearing done and breaks blead all round for mot it was fine and passed but since driving away the is a loud noise coming from drivers wheel any ideas...


IF IT IS ONLY THE NOISE WHILE DRIVING BREAKING IS ALL OK I WOULD SUGGEST THAT YOU HAVE THE DISC PADS CHECKED FOR WEAR OFF OR THE STRIP SPRING PLATE THAT GRIPS THE DICS PADS ARE NOT SEATED PROPERLY WHICH WILL GIVE NOISE WHILE YOU DRIVE IN UNEVEN ROAD.
JUST PUT THE CAR ON JACK, BEFORE REMOVING THE WHEEL TURN THE WHEEL AND CHECK IF THERE IS ANY PLAY SIDE WISE OR IF IT SOUNDS THEN THE BEARING IS THE PROBLEM IF NOT THEN REMOVE THE WHEEL THEN YOU CAN SEE THE BRAKE PADS, TRY THE TAP IT WITH LIGHT PIECE OF WOOD IF IT GIVES THE NOISE THEN YOU CAN SEE THE THE PRING THAT HOLDS THE PADS ARE NOT PROPERLY HOLDING.
IF YOU STILL COULS NOT FIND THE PROBLEM SUGGEST YOU HAVE IT CHECKED FOR ANY BROKEN PARTS WHICH COULD BE DANGEROUS TO CONTINUE DRIVING

Squeaky noises in front at all times


sound like a shock absorber does it go away when it rains and comes when its dry its the rubbers in side that do this just old age the other thing could be the lower bushing caused by the same thing dont worry to much canot cause any damage and should last for years another thing could be the break disks and pads if its this check them if there is plenty of pad just give the disk and pads a clean taking the rust from the outer ring of disk

I test drove 2009 hyundai accent recently. car has 48000 miles already. Some squeaky noise is coming when you apply the break? I am thinking of buying this car. Is this a serious problem?


Hi, squeaky brakes can be as simple as dust from the brake pads ( this can be solved by washing the brakes with a hose pipe quite easy if it has alloy wheels.
If its a constant noise the brake pads could be due for changing which could be normal for that amount of miles( May also need discs ).
I would`nt let that stop you buying the car as they are a good car
I hope i have set your mind at rest

I have squeaky break on my Honda Odyssey 2007.


Some brake pads have a wear indicator that will start making noises when pads need replacing. Piston may be sticking in cylider and causing pad to rub constantly on disk.

A noise from wheel appear once a while. squeaky. i bought it 2006.


to clean the brake rotors, stop a few times with the car in neutral instead of drive.
this will use the brake pads instead of the regenerative braking and reduce squeal.

Squeaky noise when applying breaks


semi-metallic pads can cause noise from glazing over if you are too rough on them, or a crappy pad composition. get some BG brand STOP SQUEAL and apply it to the pads. clears it right up

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.
