Brakes squeal - all new components.

Recommended Posts

I get an squeal from low speed braking occasionally. It's when applying the same amount of pressure coming to a full stop. I changed pads, rotors and vibration dampeners, all new. I did a the bedding procedure for the brakes. Other then this occasional squeal, they work great.

I did not use any CRC brake quiet or similar product. I was told the vibration dampeners made that unnecessary.

Any suggestions?

It is not a Cadillac! My brakes do the same thing when hot after several good spirited runs....I love that sound actually. Sounds like the Rolex cars when they come flying into the pits. My wife likes it too. It is just the nature of the car and your brake setup. Softer pads won't squeal but they won't stop you as fast. It's all a compromise.

I was always under the impression that the squel is the pad on the piston/caliper, not the rotor. I'm aware these are stree/track pads.

My guess is that the back of the pad (shim) is very shiny and smooth. I probably should have scuffed it a bit so the sticky compond on the back of the vibration dampner has more to grab on to. Maybe I will pull them off and do just that.

The brakes on our 996 and our Cayenne squeal. You can use a product like "Brake Quiet" grease on the back of the pads to help with this if it really bothers you. It lubricates the back of the pads and helps with the noise to a certain extent.
