Question type: Maintenance & Repair

New brakes & rotors squealing

5 Answers


Did you use anti squeal pads or lube?


Disc brake quiet is a silicone like substance that provides a barrier between the metal components and prevents brake squeal which, is just a high frequency of vibration

Is the squealing all the time or just when you apply the brakes ?

All the tune, it's constant squeal even in reverse. Lubes used, anti squeal used. I'm lost. All is on correct, extra lube used as suggested. Cleaned & lubed 3 times taken off & put back...


Did you use all new hardware including the spring clips? Are there removable shims on the pads? Are your calipers moving freely? Did you clean all the surfaces that the pad contacts on the calipers? It sounds like you've covered all the bases but you've either overlooked something or the pads themselves may be defective
