Brake Squeal

Post by Rainman » Mon Nov 25, 2019 1:42 am

My brakes squeal upon first use after sitting overnight, mainly when it's been cold and damp.

I find it very irritating, especially as I cant avoid braking as I leave the house and it makes me feel that i'm waking the neighbours.

I have never had any other car that squealed like this unless there was actually a problem.

Has everyone got this, or do I need to take it up with JLR under warranty, though this could be difficult as it only does it at first use.

Mine also. Very irritating and as above, first car I’ve had (mostly LR) that this happens on.

I’ve just had this all weekend too! When I back down my dropped curb it does it. Goes away after a short drive. Didn’t have this last winter.
My first car that was an old wreck many moons ago never had this little feature 🙄

Me too, glad that it's not just mine doing this. Literally every morning the past 3-4 weeks. After braking and squealing once, ok again until next day. Strange.

Yup. Weird. Unless it’s a parts issue for a certain batch of cars?

ME TOO!!!!
Our neighbour at the bottom of our road has even said to me 'i know it's you every morning as the brakes squeal' when i brake at the end of our road going to work every morning. Even happens after standing for short periods but always just the first time i brake, it's annoying and embarrassing! what can be done? Sorry it's happening to you guys but I'm glad it's sounds like a fault rather then just me?

I think this is temp related ? Do any other members from colder climates experience this issue? Had exactly the same issue last year when the temp dipped a bit. Took it to the dealer for another issue, so mentioned the squeal issue so they could look at it the next morning while in their care, was told when I picked it up the day after, that they replaced the pads and discs? Which was fine as I had no issues thereafter, until 3 days ago when exactly the same issue is happening again 🤬.

FWIW, I've never heard a peep (or a squeak or a squeal) from the brakes here in sunny Florida.
