I have this annoying squeaking noise coming from my front passenger brake. The rotor and pads are almost new and there not warped or anything like that. I was thinking of using that brake quiet stuff that you put on the back of the pads to help take away the noise. Have you guys used this stuff and does it work?

The brake quiet works great, but you are suppose to use it when you are doing a brake job.(everything new) If the pads are not tight in the caliper, they can get hot and cause the squeaking. You can try, this take a block of wood, staple a piece of coarse sand paper to it, and scuff up the pads. You can also take a fine metal grinder disk and hand scuff the rotors.

Ok I'll try that. And another thing, it only makes the noise when the brakes have been warmed up. If the car is cold it won't make the noise till about 5 minutes of driving until the brakes get up to temperature. I think the caliper could be sticking because a while back when I did a break job on the front I had to replace both pins in the passenger side caliper where the noise is and to be honest I dont think i lubed the pins on that side.

Just don't use too much. where ever the calipers slide on the mounts, and the pins apply a thin layer of anti-size . And if you use the brake quiet, just run a thin bead across the length of the pad and let it setup a couple minutes before you put it together
