Brake Squeal Solution

Recommended Posts

I have a 2004 C4S with low mileage (27,000 kms or 17,000 mi). My wife drives this car most of the time and rather gingerly. I bought it as a Porsche Certifed Used Car with about 24,000 kms, in excellent shape and have had no problems except for one. The car suffered from incessant brake squeal and with the top down it was down right embarassing. Despite my best efforts to use the brakes aggressively and clean them as best I could, the car squealed like a school bus. My dealer did a service of the brakes including the tedious job of cleaning the brake dust that had built up in and around each of the holes in the roters with a drill, cleaned the pads etc. It worked.

Hi- my first thought was to ask if the dealer replaced the vibration dampeners? If you don't the old one s may squeal. One solution is to use Wurth anti-squeal spray which may provide a temporary fix.

I don't know for sure, but I don't think so. If it returns that would be my next fix.

Would it be possible that they are track pads and not porsche pads. I just replaced my rotors and pads. I read a little on this forum that other pads squeal under normal road use when the are designed for the track.

I think they are stock. I believe the C4S brakes in my 04 are the same as the Turbo's brakes but that's it.
