Brakes whining??

Brakes are making an awful whining noise, the pads look like they could use changing but there not too bad. It doesn't feel like metal on metal or a squeaking noise. It also doesn't make the noise when I'm close to stopping just when braking from a higher speed. Any suggestions guys?

I would say that it most resembles a hissing noise and can easily be heard from inside the car

Re: Brakes whining??

Could be something caught between rotor and pad. Or its just about time for new pads.

Alright I guess I'll spring for some new pads, I dnt have to do anything crazy for doing the pads do I? I've read up on the brake job n heard about "bleeding" the calipers and greasing a bunch of stuff. When it comes to the pads I can simply just swap them right??

Yes you just swap on the front. Get a wrench and loosen the calipers, I like to get a clothes hanger to hold up my caliper so it's not dangling. You will need a 3"-5" in C clamp, or a pad separator to push the piston into the bore. To make room for the new pads. It's also very wise to take the sliders out and clean and lube them.

I recommend brake parts lube found at any store. Just smother and cover on grease. I always wipe excess off with a paper towel. Also make sure you rub the pad backing down with anti seize and the piston as well or it will squeal. Also CRC brake clean in the green can to clean.

If you're a little crazy like me after I put the calipers back on, I clean the wheel wells real good. Optional-but while I'm there I might as well.
