new brake pads squeaking

ive recently changed all my brake pads to EBC Green Stuff about less than 500km's ago, and for some reason, my rears tend to squeak when im coming to a stop rolling at about 10km/hr.

I just replaced pads without rotors since the rotors were still in good shape. I just sanded them down.

any ideas??

It depends on what model of the car.. In general it is caused by high hz vibration.

What you need to do is to take your brakes apart again. Thow everything in a ultrasonic washer.. clean and use some brake anti squel compound or lube and apply liberally on contact surfaces between the brake pad and the caliper.. Permatex makes the one below.



Failing that, you could have screwed up when you do your bed in.

Did you run a dial on the rotor before and after you sand the rotors?

Orrrrrrr theyre an aftermarket brake pad manufacturer and the harder compound is prone to squeaking as most aftermarket brake pads do.

i believe ive put them in properly since i use to work as a mechanic and have done brakes numerous times before.
I just dont know what it can be. They were defiantly beded in properly.

No squeaking whatsoever at high speeds. Just at rolling speeds.

And its an s2000 if it makes any difference.

Like I said before, its the compound of the brake pads. Aftermarket brake pads sacrifice noise and driveabilty for performance or cost.

On the website for the green stuff pads, it indicates that they are designed for "spirited" use, and like I mentioned: trade off between noise/life for performance.

Hawks pads are the same.

I have same problem. I have 2004 Acura TSX. No squeak until I slow down to 20 km/h to 30 km/h. I am sure squeak is coming from the rear left and right side. I changed brake pad, but no success, still squeak. Now, I am thinking abour changing rear rotors, with brake lubricant. hope this works

Also, after I brake hard for serveral stops, until brake pads gets hot, then, there is no squeak whatsoever. Very strange. I am planning to change bleeding brake fluid and replacing rotors.

Not strange. This could be very well normal for your brake pads.

What kind of pads did you get installed? Certain harder semi-metallic pads can squeal because of the higher metal content contained within the pad itself. It's a not-uncommon issue, particularly on newer Honda and Toyota's with OEM pads. Various aftermarket brand pads have the same problem.

Also, did you use any brake compound on the back of the pad before installing them? If not, the slight amount of movement that's often in there is enough to cause your brakes to start squealing.

i put HPS's on all 4 corners recently, probably ~100km
they don't squeak at all, high speed or low speed. =\

where are u putting the anti-squeal?
is there any hardware missing (the metal clips that hold the pads in on the caliper brackets, top and bottom)
