Break Creak - 2011 Mustang V6

Hey Everyone,

I'm in need of some help. When the weather is warm my break(lines?) creak like mad.

Here is a video of the noise.


New OEM pads in front, brakes have been bleed and caliper clips had anti-seize applied. I've pulled all the guide pins and cleaned/re-lubed them with 3m rubber safe lube.

Creak remains. Any ideas?

Any ideas? Could it be a cable? I'm not 100% sure how the entire break system works, but it sounds like a cable creak.

have you tried lubing pedal pivot points?

it did sound louder outside so I doubt this will help.

did it start right after new pads? if so some lube on the back of them

My money's on this. I sometimes get almost the exact same sound with the Hawk HPS pads I put on my car, usually when the pads are cold. People say the Hawk pads are a bit noisier than stock, and they ain't wrong--this despite greasing the heck out of the backs of the pads, caliper slides, etc., during installation.

OP, regreasing as Mud suggests should help. Slather as much on there as you reasonably can without getting anything on the pad or rotor surfaces themselves.

Thanks guys for the help!

I greased? with anti-seize the pins that are on the top and bottom of the pads that separate the pads from sitting directly on the caliper.

Are you saying I should apply anti-seize directly to the back of the pad where the master cylinder pushes in etc.? Sounds easy enough if that's where I should put it. Is there something better than anti-seize to use for such a location?

Yep! You want some grease on the back of the pad where it's going to touch the caliper piston(s). That should quiet 'em down.

For good measure, I also grease the little "ears" of the pads that engage in the slides cast into the caliper (there should be little smooth stainless pieces that snap into the slides--you can grease those too).

I used Sil-Glyde, but Never-Seez might be a better idea--I think the Sil-Glyde runs/washes out after a while. Whatever you use should be a high-temp grease, since the pads+calipers will get very toasty during braking.

Update: I used brake quite and it worked for about 2 days, as in, noise. I finally gave up and lived with the noise. I just not put new pads on, but not OEM and the noise is gone. You were both right, the pads were the issue but because I did the brake quite stuff did want to deal with it any more after the noise came back, I left it. But this time with only doing different pads and no major grease or brake quite added, noise left and hasn't returned!
