: squeaky caliper?

04-13-11, 08:14 AM
over the last couple of days my car has started to make a squeaking/creaking noise when I slow down to a stop, it only happens when I"m braking, it's a real annoying creaking sound coming from the right from wheel, at first I thought it might be the D3 springs but the car is quiet when I go over bumps and every other senario, it only does it as I am coming to a stop and my foot is on the brake, if I let off the brake as I'm coming to that stop it stops creaking, any suggestions :hmm:

i have the same problem... im taking it in this friday to the dealership. Whenever i go over a bump, or hit the brakes... the car makes crazy creaking sounds like it is about to fall apart. I've been reading that it might be the control arm bushing?

Do you know what a brake squeal is? The pads can't be worn yet, right? The stock pads are dirty for sure, but mine never squealed; even after using them hard.

Has it been wet out? My car does this when wet out and it is a characteristic of these pads/calipers. If you have plenty of pad left, you may be taking a trip to the dealer for nothing.
