Why do the brakes in your 2002 Toyota Celica squeak while in reverse and only in reverse?

there are wear indicators on both inner front pads on this car. when the pads wear to a certain point (about 3/32") the indicator rubs on the rotor, causing a squeak. when youre driving, the torque from the axle distorts the position of the rotor in relationship to the sensor. it just so happens in this case that when youre in reverse, the rotor tends to bend toward the sensor. when in drive, it bends away.

The brakes can squeak, the suspension can squeak, the steering can squeak, the wheel hub/bearings can squeak, have a trusted mechanic determine the source of the squeak.

Actually, automobile brakes squeak under several circumstances. The most common include pad or shoe wear and/or glazed rotors or shoes.

Brakes sometimes squeak because of dust build up. In disc pads there is also a thin metal plate designed to squeal when you need new pads. You should check your pads. Brakes can aslo squeak when wet after a rain, (can get flash rust), but it should go away after a few stop.

I just got a complete overhaul on my brakes and a week later they started squeaking so I called the shop and he said the brake pads need to be sanded with an abrasive disk or flexible honing brush.

Check for looseness or play in the joint Do you hear a "Ping" when shifting from Park- Drive or Reverse? Do you hear a "Squeak, Squeak, Squeak" when driving down the road?

Can you give more detail? Is it squeak, squeak, squeak or squeeeeeeek? I'm assuming that it only occurs when the car is moving. Does putting the brakes on make it change? --Ken It does make squeeeeek sound when car is moving and putting brakes on does change it.

My 2007 Murano has squeaky brakes when I first start out, usually in the morning or after sitting for awhile. After a minute or so, the squeak goes away. The brakes work fine.

brakes squeeks can be caused by dust and dirt on the brakes, but usually on a chev, this is caused by the brake pads,with the removal of asbestos and the adding of more metal to compensate, chev brakes are renowned for this problem

Well, I really don't know, but my 2003 GT has the same problem from 1st to 2nd. I've tried WD-40 on the lever mechanism and it doesn't seem to have any effect. The squeak is still there, and nothing else has happened, since nothing has broken I have just let it be!

If the brakes on a Mazda 6 are squeaking, it could be indicative of a problem. The brake pads could be incorrectly set.

Take wheels off and check, no use speculating.
