Brakes!?

My rear brakes and sometimes my front ones screech whenever I press the brakes but ive checked them over and the all brake pads are only about 6months old and have a lot of pad still. Any opinions on what it might be?

Yeah I put them in myself. Yes they look adequately lubed. The rotors seem fine no abnormal lining or wasting.

What type of brake pads? Some of the higher performance brake pads squeak louder than others.

Did you put the little silver clip back in the caliper before you put the pads back on, and also don't just lube the slides, lube anywhere metal to metal contact will happen.

I had this issue it's just bake dust that gets in between the pads or on the rotors just give it a wash and clean your wheels and bakes you should be good.

Red fluid could be from rubber breaking down...if it gets darker then you know its so. 99% of fluid is clear/opaque...

The best to check for now would be cleaning them and the rotor and using a antisqueek spray then?

anti-squeak is ok, but if there was any cosmosline left on your rotors during install that could explain the squeal. it can cause the pads to crystalize

And what would be the best way to clean a rotor? If the anti-squeek lubricant got onto the rotor do you think during braking it'll slip or something and not stop? Im scared it might thats why ive waited lol

Oddly enough if you get any kind of lube on your pads or rotors it'll make the brakes grap and lockup not slip. And is the squealing all of the time?

I should clean them first to see if it goes away then
Yeah well 80% of the time if I brake then release them and start to brake again it seems to quiet down a bit

Also if you chamfer the ends of the pads it will help with squealing as well. And you may need to take a whiz wheel to the rotors to knock off the glaze.
