Just rotated tires. Looked at rotors and pads again. All looks good, but brakes squeal annoyingly and have for the past 3000 miles. Ideas?
It just reduces squealing in certain situations. OP see if you can find shims that go onto the pads the interface with the piston. Might help dampen things. Also could have deposits on the rotor face causing drag and thus squeal. Could try and get rotors turned if there still enough material.Never heard of brake squeal products. I’ll google it. I do almost all of me vehicles’ maintenance and repairs.
I don't know who taught this guy to service brakes, but I'm glad I'm not paying him to do mine.There could be several reasons your brakes are squealing, the cheapest 1st step for me after I determined the pads and rotor are good would be to use a brake squeal product. ( google brake squeal spray or grease). Don't know your comfort level with auto maintenance but I'll add, I would also get brake cleaner for the rotors and pads, wear clean gloves and don't get any of the brake seal product on the rotor or pad surfaces, oil on your braking surfaces are bad for braking. (even oils from your skin in my opinion).
I also found a YouTube video that may help, but I only recommend doing this work if you're confident with a wrench. Hope this helps.
If the squealing started after rotating the tires, perhaps you bent a brake backing plate so that it is rubbing against a rotor.Just rotated tires. Looked at rotors and pads again. All looks good, but brakes squeal annoyingly and have for the past 3000 miles. Ideas?
