BRAKES SQUEAKING

2003 Toyota Camry

Brakes problem
2003 Toyota Camry 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 121000 miles

I have just changed the brake pads and rotors on all four corners, used shims, and the stop squeal lube on back of pads. No promblems until brakes heat up, then while coming to a stop the squealing starts! Only squeaks when slowing below 10-15 mph, like at stop lights and stop signs etc. Can you help? Did I miss something? Also got all the parts directly from Toyota!

Hi there,

It sounds as if the pads have not bedded in, and are a little glazed up, often if you work the brakes fairly hard and get then nice and hot this will do the trick, just don't go jumping on the brakes on the hwy, find a quiet road and get the brakes hot, 3-4 heavy stops from 80 Kms should do the job. Try this. If unsure get a mechanic to inspect the brakes for any fault and do the bed in for you.
