Squeaking brakes

I know thereís many threads on here with issues of squeaking brakes but they all seem to be first thing in the morning or reversing. I could handle that.

Both times Iíve replaced my pads itís squeaked nearly the whole time. Iíve done about 3k miles on new brembo pads and itís still there.

Is it only when braking lightly, heavily, or all the time when braking? What shape were the discs in or did you replace those as well?

Squeaking Brakes

Brush a light smear of hi temp copper grease between the shims and the steel back of the pads, remove the steel shims to accomplish this, also a very light dab of copper hi temp grease on the pad steel ends where they slide and make contact into the calipers. Exercise caution when applying do not get the grease on the friction side of the pads, use a judicious amount. This will fix your problem tc

When the wheels turns it squeaks, sounds like the boots full of crickets if I have the window down. It squeaks constantly doesnít matter if hot or cold, it actually stops squeaking when I brake

Thanks il give that a try. The person who fitted the pads did say he used copper grease but maybe not in the same way, so wonít hurt trying again.

This symptom can be because the pads are still in contact with the rotors when you aren't applying brake pressure. Typically, that is because the caliper isn't being pushed back, or isn't allowed to go back because the guide pins are gummed up or rusted. It can be overlooked when just putting on new pads, which the application of grease on the back of the clips and pads wouldn't fix a problem with the guide pins. The trick is going to see which one is doing it, because even though it can be loud, it probably is only one brake doing it.

You might be dragging a brake pad, Do have a lot of brake dust on any or all wheels. My 2012 TDI squeeked on reversing in the morning then went away for the rest of the day,so not the same issue. The new 2016 doesn't squeek at all.
