Try doing any typical break-in procedure:My brakes on my 09 R/T are squeaking and all my Pads are at 70%. I only have 30K miles on it. I have heard the R/T's are known for this, but has anyone found a fix for this.
If you don't know what resurfacing is I guess we can't expect you to know why breaking in the pads would help.:3-smash:Mine do the same - I bought the car with ~27k on it with both sets squeaking and told the dealership to fix the brakes before I bought. They said the "resurfaced" whatever the means and said due to metallic in the brakes they are going to do that. I said that's horseshit to suggest the brakes are made to squeak, but they had stopped, but they started again a while back.
I hit my brakes every single day, I don't see how going out and doing a "break in" series will make a difference.
Overheated pads harden and crystallize. This glazing occurs on the rotors as well. The squealing sound is a result of these super hardened surfaces coming in contact with one another. It is the friction created by the brake pad against the rotor that stops a vehicle. When crystallization of pad and rotor occurs, there is much less friction. This results in diminished braking power and squealing brakes. The heat cycling from bedding in old pads breaks away the glaze.....punk.You're welcome to educate me, old timer. I wasn't referring to new pads or rotors, I'm talking about brakes with X thousand miles on them and eventually start squeaking.
Thanks:box2:Hah, nicely done.
So you're saying you have to break-in brakes more than just when they're new...?
