so I was driving last week, and I heard my rear brakes making a lot of squeaking noises, so naturally, I replaced the pads. they were in need of it anyways. it was a quick job, took longer to round up the new pads than it took to replace them. But here is my problem: the rear brakes are still squeaking! I pulled them apart again last night, and couldn’t see anything that could be making that much noise, so I was curious if anyone has had a similar experience with this sort of problem. does anybody have a cure for this? thanx…
Not sure how accurate this is, but I had a similar problem with my front brakes. A friend of mine suggested that it might just be brake dust accumulated on the pads/rotors. Since I just replaced everything, I figure it’s gotta be something along those lines.
Have you got a compressor at home? Try blowing some air across everything next time you take things apart, see if you can kick any dust off.
Again, just a theory. Good luck though. Know how annoying that SCREEEEEEE-EEE-EEEEE sound is man!
the old ones were probally squeaking because the indicators were probally starting to wear. The new ones are probally squeeking because there new. They should stop after a while, but if you want, you can go to a autoparts store and buy anti squeel stuff and that will fix it-you put it inbetween the shims and pads
thanx, vtecteg! did the trick! muchos gracias!
