The following diagnosis might be helpful if the vehicle exhibits the symptom(s) described in this PI.
Important: DO NOT USE THIS PI FOR THE HYBRID YUKON AND TAHOE MODELS.
Some customers may comment on a squeak noise when the brake pedal is applied or when released. This noise is normally heard when the brake pedal is slowly applied with the engine on or off, but can occur when the brake pedal is released. The noise may be isolated to the master cylinder area.
To correct this concern, remove as much of the old brake fluid from the master cylinder as possible and refill with a modified DOT 3 brake fluid, P/N 88862806 (in Canada, use P/N 88862807). Depress and release the brake pedal five times to allow the new fluid to enter the system.
Note: It is not necessary to flush the complete brake system with the modified dot 3 fluid to correct this noise.
Brake Fluid, DOT 3
