SQUEAKY BRAKES

Ford F-150

I have a 2005 Ford F-150, 4.6L V-8 with 19,000 miles

The front passenger brakes are squeaking that can only be heard from the outside of the car or when my windows are down. The brakes don't seem t ohave any defects but the squeek is annoying. I have been told that there may be debris in the wheel but not sure how true this is. Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

Squeaking can be from a variety of souces. At 19,000 they are original I would think. May be down to the sensor?

A rust ridge can play into a noise, a hard spot in the pads, glazing on the rotor surface, loose parts, dry parts are the more typical causes.

Generally dirty or dust build is common with drum brakes, not disc.

Just take a oil can and soak um up real good.

No dont do that!

It could be the wear indicators if it sounds like a metalic squeek. Take pads off and examine them if they are worn replace
