Default Squeaky Brakes

It'* so annoying. I've had the car like 10k mi and three times I've taken it apart and used the red CRC Brake Quiet stuff on it. Typically works for the first hundred miles or so, then it starts squeeling again. I don't apply a THICK coat, but I consider it to be a generous coat.

Is there a product anybody knows of that'* more efficient? I once tried this stuff in an aerosol can at votech that had a NAPA label on it, that didn't work well either.

Makes tons of brake dust too... I think next set of pads, if possible, will be ceramic.

did you buy cheap semi-metalics? if you spent around $20, then thats your problem.

try a set like raybestos, wagner, or equivalent. should be about $35-$50.

also, you have to break them in.

Low quality pads will do this. Any thin coat of the CRC is completely reliable and will quiet the pad-caliper pisoton squeak zone. But cheap pads will squeak on the rotor face.

Probably cheap pads. Dealer put them on before I bought the car, probably the same reason for all of the brake dust lol.

yeah, they use the cheapies.

get some Bendix CT3 or TitaniuMetallic pads, they're both awesome.

You might want to go with new Bendix rotors too, since the dealer probably used cheapy rotors too.
