Hey Marvin==Since the epa took away asbestos from the manufactures of brake linings, it is common for them to squeek. Some brands squeek worse than others. GoodluckJoe

04 alero front brakes get hot why?

This could be for a few reasons, but if they are getting hot without you applying them, I would suggest that they are sticking and causing the pads to rub on the discs, or if they are drum brakes, the shoes on the drums. If they are only getting hot as a result of using the brakes, I would suggest checking that the brakes are balanced properly, and that the front brakes are not doing all of the work/ or that the back brakes are working at all.

When the brakes on my 1996 Ranger get wet they grab and stick Anyone had this problem If so what did you do to fix the problem?

When that happens to me, I "fan" the brakes until they dry. "Fanning" is lightly applying the brakes and releasing several times in succession. The heat caused by the friction will dry out the pads after a few "fannings". You want to do this right after you run over a puddle of water, don't wait till you get to a stop sign or until you have to stop suddenly to find that your brakes are sticking and not working properly.
