Hi. My cars brakes have a loud (getting louder) whistling sound when brakes are applied lightly like stopping

at a redlight. They dont make it when applied hard. I bled all 4 wheels & had no air pockets. I blew out all dust

with my air compressor, then cleaned the rotors with brake clean. It still does it. Any suggestions?

thanks, dave

Pads and rotors. I would replace them.

Check to see if the squealers are hitting therotors they are little metal tabs on teh pads if it squeals then goes away when you hit the brakes the you may need a brake job.
