Hi Im new and I have a 2007 G6 V6 and Ive been having a lot of problems with my brakes. I recently got new brake pads in Nov but my brakes continue to squeak beyond belief. This is not the occasional light squeaking, this is gut wrenching, nail bitting incredibly annoying, very loud squeaking that wont stop. Mostly if not only from the front brakes. I had it looked at and the place wanted to charge me 480 dollars for brakes pads and resurfacing my rotors which dont need it. I have semi mettalic brake pads which is what was on it when I bought it but the guy said that the dealer calls for ceramic brake pads only which you may or may not know are more expensive then other kind. I dont know what to do because I just recently got new brake pads.... Help me please!
Clean the surface of the pads by lightly rubbing on the ground and then clean your clamps where the pads go into the assemblies, and if need be apply BG stop squeal, to the pad face, and let that dry before putting back into the assemblies.
The rubbing of the pads on the ground might be the easiest, but it also might be temporary.
Thanx you guys for all the help. I applied the stop squeak and it helped for about a day or two and while my brakes are not as loud as before they have start squeaking AGAIN. I might just have to give in and buy new brake pads AGAIN.... but definitely ceramic this time. Thanx again and if anyone has anymore suggestions they would be greatly appreciated!!!
