I just had my 2004 Ford Explorer’s entire brake system done in January. Now the breaks have started to make a loud squeak when applied. They function normal but in the mild/cold weather we’ve had the past two days they are squeaking. Any ideas what this could be?
It could be a number of things. The rotors were not resurfaced correctly. The brake pads are missing the anti-rattle springs. Those are just a couple of things that could cause noise. The best thing to do would be to call the shop that did the brakes and have them recheck their work. The brakes should still be under warranty.
