Default Squeeks & Rattle

OK, got a few problems....

1) My brakes seem to be squeeking lately usually at speeds lower than 50 until I stop. I have also noticed that they seem to be getting a little mushy but it just might be me being more worried since they are squeeking.

2) When i start up my car, esp. in the morning or when it hasn't been running for a while, it makes an odd squeeking noise. It sounds like it'* coming from the belt but i'm not seeing anything.

3) My car'* dash is starting to rattle quite a bit. I think I have pinpointed it to be behind the right side of the steering wheel and to the left of the driver'* side air vent.

Got any idea'* for me on how to fix em?

Thanks!

On the dash one, pop out the trim, and put a little grease on the tang and the backside of the edge right there. I had a squeak in the same spot...

A tang is a prong, tab, pin, or post. Its like the bolt in a push on application.

The brakes sound like the caliper piston is fully extended and not quite the preassure you once had, How is the brake pads? Look like they're almost worn out?

When you first start up and the hear the noise you need to poke around the engine with a stethascope to isolate the noise. Sounds like a tight bearing that loosens up when warm?
