Yes if the squeaking is from the wear indicators on the pads, if the pads are fine then the brake parts need to be lubricated, a little silicone grease on the pistons and sliding parts will stop the squeak.

The brake pad squealers are warning you to have the brakes serviced soon.

Dirty brake pads could cause a car to make a squeaking noise when putting the car in gear or when releasing the brakes. Cleaning, sanding, or replacing the brake pads should make the sound stop.

They either need to be adjusted or they were not properly reassembled. See the related article for adjusting and changing this brake.

If you want to know if there is somewhere you can get instruction on changing brake pads because you need your brake pads changed, then the answer would be yes.

Most people will tap the brakes of a car when their car is going downhill, usually to keep the car under the speed limit. The squeaking noise could be the brake rotors or the brake pads.รŠ

The brake pedal has a hinge or pivot pin, give it a shot of lubricant,should stop squeaking.

The most obvious thing is worn brake pads. The squeaking is the worn brake pad warning device. Can also be a defective wheel bearing. In inspect the brake pads.

Most likely the front squeaking while turning is a brake issue. If this is the case and it is left uncorrected, you could be looking at a very expensive brake job.

Very likely the brake pad warning strip. It's a device deliberately set into the brake pads of many GM vehicles that gives you an audible notification that the brake pads are almost worn out.

Have your brake pads checked. If the squeaking sound stop when you apply the brakes it may be your brake pad wear indicators rubbing the rotors to warn you to have your brake pads replaced. If you ignore it damage will result when the rotors and metal brake pad backing or rivets rub after the brake pad linings are worn away.

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

There are many places where one can find instructions on changing brake pads. A good place is the website "edmunds" to find instructions on changing brake pads.

Brake pads are the pads that sit on top of the rotor that when the brake pedal is pressed the brake pads squeeze the rotor and the car stops. Signs that they need replacing are if you hear squeaking when pressing the brake pedal.

On all the brake pads which are made, they make them where they will begin to squeak if they need to be replaced. If they are squeaking then you need to get them checked immediately.

To put brake fluid in a 1997 Ford Explorer, you must locate the brake fluid reservoir. Once you locate it, unscrew the cap, and replenish the brake fluid.

If you brakes are still squeaking after you change your brake pads in any car, you have a warped rotor. The squeaking is caused by the rotor vibrating when pressure is applied by the pads. The best way to permanently fix the problem is to replace your pads and your rotors at the same time. This can also cause accelerated wear on the new pads if you do not replace the rotors at the same time, or at least have them turned.

Sounds like a brake wear indicator. If it changes while braking then it is. Recommend a brake inspection.

Whenever you want to but once your brakes start squeaking that means your brake pads are low or your discs/drums are wrapped and need to be skimmed or replacing
