Having problems with your 2003 Ford Taurus ?

New brakes squeaking

\015 I had the front brake pads and rotors replaced only yesterday, but today while driving home I heard squeaking coming from the brakes, at regular intervals that speed up if I go faster - what's making this noise? \012\012The brake pads are ceramic and cost me $58. The rotors were worn down (the mechanic said they had a "glazed" appearance), and the new ones he put in, plus labor, brought the total to $328. Should I take the car back to the mechanic and have him clean the brakes, or install better quality brake pads, or could it be something else?\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 26-02-2018

Answers :

Yes take it back to the shop first. Anything you do on your own can void the warranty from the shop.
If they can't make it right, try another shop.
Could be something as simple as a wear indicator not put on correctly.
Poor quality brake pads or improper machining of the brake rotors is the common cause. Use factory OEM disk pads from the dealer, not the cheapest thing out there to avoid this type of problem with noise. Note the noise doesn't affect braking...
