September 3, 2019 Reply AceMellon My Mountain bike’ brakes make more noise then my car’s motor September 4, 2019 Reply TaintlessMoney Mine only make noise while reversing ans pressing on the breaks September 4, 2019 Reply Cachi - You didn’t cover this case- brand new brakes (disks, pads, and hardware) squeak while backing up only and only if the air is humid and only during the first backing up of the day.Dealerships will make you believe it’s normal. However, my car never did this until I had them replace my brakes.Why is this happening? September 4, 2019 Reply Miatacrosser I haven't watched the video yet but I was always taught with disc brakes to file a 45° angle on the leading edge of the brake pad if one wasn't already done. I've always done that and having to do over 50 brake replacements/jobs(I drove my cars commercially for 42 years and raced cars in my spare time for the past 35 years)in over 3 million miles, I've never had any brake pad squeak. jm .02 September 4, 2019 Reply William Peng Gotta squeak because racecar yo September 4, 2019 Reply Austin Mosley 13:26 demonetized September 4, 2019 Reply Yaseen Gire Hi Chris, I’ve recently replaced the front pads and discs on my car and they’ve started to squeak slightly when dabbing the brakes. 2 days after fitting them they were silent and I thought it was a job well done. The brembo manufacturer bedding procedure for the brakes is just to drive around normally for 200km so that’s what I’ve been doing. I took good care when installing the brakes and made sure to grease all the required points etc. Before I take the car to bits again, do you have any suggestions? Cheers Yas September 4, 2019 Reply AdraicStarks So, I've got this constant, stuttering squeak coming from my front driver's side wheel (I recently had an accident where someone ran me into a concrete divider, & I've been noticing this noise ever since I got my car running again after that accident). Any idea what that could be? September 5, 2019 Reply tom peachey the people who disliked is sad and why are you watching September 5, 2019 Reply xXFAsT PandazXx Kinda late but what do you think the issue would be when the brakes are sqeaky but whenever I drive around for a bit it seems to go away. Anything specific that stands out? September 5, 2019 Reply MrJohn Gaming Good video!

Because it creates a battery an corodes the metals.Never use on alu because there is this effect very strong September 5, 2019 Reply Ghost Dunno if anyone will answer but my driver side rear wheel is making a squeaky noise whenever there is pressure on thebwheel for example when I turn right the weight goes more on the left side ( the side of the squeaky wheel) or sometimes when I drive straight it squeaks but when I turn left ajd the left side of the car lifts because the right side will have more weight it doesn't squeak anymore, any ideea what it is? September 5, 2019 Reply Leooon Your lubticant explaination is bulshit btw. the copper is already made to little pieces, theres no sence that it should deform without breaking apart. Also the lubrication of Graphite is beacause there are so tiny parts moving with nearly no friction. September 5, 2019 Reply riko k My front car brake squeak when the car goes backwards…why is that? September 6, 2019 Reply God doesn't have a gender you fag Buy a new car dude September 6, 2019 Reply 2learneasy Why the hell would you want to stop your brakes squeaking? I enjoy finding the sweet spot when rolling up to lights for maximum squeak and even try to get a tune using varied pressure. September 6, 2019 Reply Adam Solomon My brakes and pads were replaced recently but my brakes are still making noise, what could it be?

I live in Somerset NJ September 7, 2019 Reply Ururdek My truck's brakes don't squeak when braking, but cruising at low speeds (5-10 mph) there's an agonizing squeal. What could be wrong with it? September 7, 2019 Reply Mauro Véliz Cedeño Thank you so much bro!! Your knowledge about repairability is super cool! I was using in my first maintenance brake cleaner on my brake pads… But now I know what I need to do. Thank you so much Chris, greetings from Ecuador 😃🇪🇨 September 7, 2019 Reply Richard Amuir To get rid of that noise, just coat all the friction surfaces with a thick coat of Chrisco. September 7, 2019 Reply Eli Z Sorry Chris, at 11:55, I don't think lubricating exposed brake caliper channels is a good idea. All this will do is work for a week while it attracts a shit load of dirt and grime rendering your lubrication ineffective, possibly making the channel even worse than before cleaning and lubing it. Just saying…. September 7, 2019 Reply Brimz Every time you use your hand gestures it reminds me of someone trying to use a prosthetic arm to mimic a human. September 7, 2019 Reply GodRoIIs 1st your amazing thank you for all that you do. 2nd I have a 2007 Toyota Yaris 3 door, it seems as if I don't have calipers or brake pads in my rear wheel, only the front wheels. when I drive and hit the breaks I hear no squeaking. Its once I let go of the breaks I hear a quick 1-1.5 second squeal. I've even located the sound and its literally right in the rear wheel area but I can't see anything move back there when my girl hits the breaks for me, I can only hear it. So confused please help Chris! September 8, 2019 Reply Cody Cornell Question for Chris or anyone else willing to help! My car makes a high pitch squeaking noise on the drivers side whenever I turn to the left, only the left. I just installed brand new pads and rotors and cannot find out what is causing this. Could it be the brake hardware needs more lubrications? Any thoughts would be helpful, very annoying when turning.

September 9, 2019 Reply intempify Great video but you forget about brake pads with shims. The official guide just says you should lubricate between the shim and brake pas. Should we lubricate anything else? September 9, 2019 Reply Luke Dee My dude, amazing videos. So well put together. September 9, 2019 Reply Pleumel Dude.. thank you… I mean.. it's all common sense when you work on it but if i do something, i watch one of your videos just to.. not overlook or forget something… September 9, 2019 Reply Brett Hutchinson Hey Chris I have a 69 Camaro rs with disc brakes in the front. I took them apart and nothing seems out of the ordinary everything is lubed the dust shield isnt contacting the rotor and the wear pins are no where near the rotor but I still have a squeak when I press down on my brakes. Any suggestions? September 9, 2019 Reply Vastin Kelter hi Chris, I wanted to mention another cause as I had it with Citroen c5 that had hydraulic brakes system. Brake pads have been squeezed so much that it created a layer similar to hardened carbon and it squeaked very badly until I got a brand of pads that were resistant to squeezing. Don't remember the make but you can find it on some c5 forums. September 9, 2019 Reply Ken G Dude, thank you. September 10, 2019 Reply Joe Shmoe There is a whole other reason brakes can make noise. The pads themselves vibrate and make a high pitched squeal. A shim behind or a bit of rubberized glue will stop that, or just wait for the pads to wear in against the rotor.

Only now I know that cars have brakes on all 4 wheels and not only on the front. September 10, 2019 Reply Im Redemptions My 99 mustang has a clicking noise coming from the right front brake. It doesn’t make any noise until I apply the brakes, and it has a small range for till it will stop making the noise. Range from one to ten for when it’s making the noise would be between 3 and 5 or so. I have no clue what could be causing it, though the pads are getting a little low, which I have new rotors and pads to replace them with, but I don’t think it’s the cause for the noise. Any ideas?

I've checked the pads and rotors they're all good, does moisture/humidity also make breaks squeak? I love in north east Texas and it gets pretty humid here.

Like a train horn. After pulling around a turn or two and stopping it doesn't ever repeat. Any specific things you think this could be. September 11, 2019 Reply Dan - thanks man, I've been hearing brake noise when I'm going slow whether it's coasting braking or accelerating and based on this video it sounds like my rotors maybe slightly uneven or warped so that I can only hear it at low speed and at higher speed it's just not loud enough for me to hear. My car just so happens to be in the shop so I can ask the guys to look at it. Thanks again! September 11, 2019 Reply KalaKukko My life has changed thank you. September 11, 2019 Reply Doc. FunkBlack I usually put some oil or elbow grease and it won't squeak for several days. September 11, 2019 Reply Kevin Jones Brake hardware = rattle springs . Dump them dust shields and jet hose the brake callipers when you wash the car, just saying like IMO. September 11, 2019 Reply Mac Doodles Soapy wooderAnyseas September 11, 2019 Reply Anti-theist The compound of the pad is usually what causes the squealing noise, not your lubrication hints. Buy original, buy premium, buy cheap…. it is for you to find out by trial and error but each time it costs you a new set of pads. My Merc always squealed and gave off a lot of black dust on the front wheels which was a pain in the ass to clean off. I then saw an advert for Metal King pads (in Singapore many years ago. I bought a set and problems solved. The next set were just as good.

September 11, 2019 Reply RNryanfromsson Chris my brakes squeak intermittently but only after my car has been stationary for a long time, like over night or after sitting all day while I'm at work. And it they stop squeaking after I've braked a few times. This has been happening for years. I'm in FL with a 2015 VW Passat and get it serviced regularly and when I bring it up the mechanics tell me its bc of moisture. Got any thoughts? Thanks!

September 12, 2019 Reply flor33ntin Do you know a reason why there might be a squeeking noise when you steer right or left? September 12, 2019 Reply Lumpschlevot I have a 2008 Tacoma. Lifted with new rims, tires, shocks and brakes. It has since been squealing fairly loudly when making turns. My first suspician is brakes. I had them install ceramic brakes, do they make more noise? or could it be something else? Its hard to detect where the noise is coming from but definitely from the under carriage and it only makes noise when the wheels are turning on low speed turns like in a drive through or parking lot. No noise going straight. September 12, 2019 Reply tectorama Squeaking brakes was a known problem on some Citroens a few years ago.
