Brake squeaking sound

2 posts in this topic

Hi not sure wonder this question has been asked before. I'm using a brembo brake kit in my forester and there is always this squeaking sound when I brake lightly at low speed. This sound doesn't happen when I brake hard.

Workshop told me that this is normal for performance brake kit. Is this really normal? Also I notice that my rotor has grooves cut into it. Can this be causing the sound?

Apologies for the new I question but this is the first time I'm using brembo kit. On my previous mark x, with a Lexus 350 BBK, there is absolutely no sound at all.

It is common and normal but not everyone suffers from it. Cars don't come with squeaky brakes from the factory no matter how big of a brake they have so there is definitely a cause. Usually this can be insufficient grease during installation, brake pad issue, brake shims or rarely, rotor issue.
