Ok you replaced pads and rotors, front or rear? Did you use ATE rotors and oem pads? BG makes some stuff that I use anytime I do pads and have no problem with squeels. If your rotors have oil ( for rust during storage) did you wash with soap and water before installing? Rear pads have squeeling problems so we install shims , Volvo uses the same ones.

Several Manufacturers have technical service bulletins about using anti seize, it will cause chattering or squeeling of the brakes. If you want to use a lubricant on the back of the pads where it mayes with the piston, mercedes has a lubricant that you can but or some auto stores sell it also. DONT use anti seize , from experience take this advice.

Refering to a previous advise on this tread:
There is no adjustment possible on a caliper piston. Disk brakes can not be adjusted.
Caliper pistons can not be extended ''too far'' when installed.
This kind of false recommendations/comments are certainly not helping those who are here to find solutions to their problems.

Sounds like cheap pads to me, try a set of Jurids or Textars.

I'd also make sure you didn't hamfist the backing plates. I've seen these rub lightly while rolling and due to deflection in the bearings while braking make contact with the rotor, the result.... it sounds like a garbage truck stopping.

I've also seen these make noises only under turning loads.


I'm a firm believer in OEM vendor parts which is not that hard to figure out.

HristoTomov: I never meant or implied you gave those false indications on purpose. I know you did it to try and help, and that's OK.
But when a false indication is given, I think it is only OK to correct it. Other memebers of this forum have done it in the past.

another problem could be that the pads resonate with the vibration from the rotors. i had the same problems! one way to fix it is to remove the pads and place a THICK layer of brake pad grease (kinda like glue) on the back(and sides) of the pad, let it sit for 1 minute then place it back in the caliper. this fixed my problem.
