This is when you test the shop's trust and credibility that you took your car to.

Take it back and explain the problem as to how the symptoms changed. I would expect that they should try to immediately or asap get you car in and look over their work. Don't address them in a negative or hostile way, they should want to resolve this without stress on your or their parts.

Keep this in mind, these particular cars are more apt to squeak than many, but with enough attention the shop should be able to fix it.

There is a TSB on these brakes, it is #98-5A-19. this may help the shop if they have no answers.

AnswerThe squeeling is most likely a belt slipping. You can probably find a belt dressing at an auto parts store to spray on it. If the squeeling stops after spraying, replace or tighten the belt. Another cause may be that your neighbors cat is caught somewhere near the fan and the squeeling is actually the cat screaming as you are shaving his skin off, layer by layer. AnswerI agrre with the last guy, except about the cat. If it was the cat, it would also happen at idle.

Knowing what kind of car and engine size may help. However if you turn the wheel all the way at idle, do you hear this noise? You may or may not be able to tighten the belt. It may be controlled by a tensioner.

Do yourself a favor, find an independent repair shop you can trust. It always costs an arm and a leg (or seems to).
