Subject: Re: [modern] Squeling breaks
I have this problem as well, but mine was the result of improper storage
for 2 years by previous owner, which resulted in rusted rotors.
The mechanic suggested trying to resurface the pads and rotors, and also
service the calipers to see if everything can be saved w/o replacement…
It worked for the front ones, but the rears started squealing away in a
week once they warmed up.
The rear rotors are still within spec… can I get away with just
replacing the pads, or should I be doing both rotor/pad at the same time?

My breaks seems to squeal a bit just before coming to stop.
It is not loud but it is there.
I thought it was some dust or something and that it would go away, it
has been there for some weeks now.
I have not any indication on low brake pads or anything.
Any idea ?
