Re: Is it normal for brakes to squeak a bit (waccamatt)

it is "normal" to an extent. How did you bed them in? At all? Or just drive it....?

I would remove pads (an easy task)... flat sand them, then bed them properly.......

yes, but to paraphrase Freud, sometimes a squeak is just a squeak

Re: Is it normal for brakes to squeak a bit (waccamatt)

It's not abnormal, but it sure is annoying. There is a Tech Note fix for the squeal that entails different pads and metal backing plates which, probably, change the resonance pattern of the braking system, and thus stop the squeal. I had it done to mine, and the difference in enjoyment of the car for such a seemingly simple annoyance cannot be overstated.<p>Do a search in the forum/archive and you can find the Tech Note / TNN.
