Popped out last night it was 10 degrees and no noise. Perhaps when the snow flake symbol appears the brakes work in a different way to avoid slipping as it’s all electronic now days.

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 🤬.
Anyone know how to raise it as a service notice with JLR to force them to look at a permanent solution for everyone, so when they next visit the dealer it is rectified.

I suspect it is the pads and not the disks, as I see other models have had issues, but don't know if they found a permanent fix.

I don't see any point in taking it in unless the solution is permanent.

Well me too. Only happens first thing in the morning and generally when cold and wet overnight. Does not happen once the brakes have warmed up. Not sure I can be bothered to take it back to the dealers as it disappears. Bizarre.

Same here... Usually the first 2 or 3 times I try to break after I start the car and drive away. It is annoying as it's not only true for when it's been raining, you just never know before it happens. I suppose this should be normal and has to do with the humidity and other factors but the stock brake discs on my Velar seem especially prone to getting rust on them very quickly. Sometimes it doesn't take more than a couple hours of being parked still before I start noticing rusty patches on the brake discs, usually followed by brake squeal.

Another one to add! I'm at 25k miles. It noticed the squeal about 6 months ago. For me, it doesn't matter. Short drive, long drive, hot weather, cool weather. I'll bring it up when she goes in for her next scheduled service.

I'm curious if the Velars that are experiencing this squeal have been optioned with Active Rear Locking differential.
