Now I'm starting to get aggrivated, I've been driving like this for like a week now and this brake squealing is unbearable now. It is the rear drivers side brake that is making the noise. I just checked the rotor and it looks fine but the car is still making this noise. I was reading some stuff on here about stuck calipers and what not. I'm not sure if this is the problem but do you think that could have something to do with it? Any help you guys can give me is really appreciated, just let me know anything that you can think of. thanks in advance.

You might be experiencing exactly what I just found out happend to me. I've had the same thing, replaced pad and rotor, turned out it was the caliper. It was frozen in the right rear, destroyed my pad, scored the rotor, but its fixable. (brand new brembos- im pissed) Well in any case, what I suggest you do is goto a brake specialist and sound like u kno what the problem is. Propose that your dad (who knows alot about cars or something to that extent) says its prolly shot pads or a seized, if not seizing caliper. This way they won't try to hit you up for both if its just one. Most of the time those places try to hit you up for pads, resurface or new rotors, and a caliper all in one... EXPENSIVE! Well good luck.

I thought maybe it was just the pads, but this is a constant noise even when I'm not applying the brakes. It just squeaks and squeaks while I drive. I just had the tire off and I can see that the pad closest to me on the outside is on the rotor right now so I'm sure thats whats making the noise. Could it be a caliper problem?

you can easily change out the caliper yourself IF that's the problem. Unbolt the caliper and remove the pads. If the pads look severely worn then just replace them and it should fix the prob. If the pads are ok, try pushing the piston back into the caliper and have someone step on the pedal while you watch the piston come back out to check for proper operation. (fronts use a c-clamp, rears must be "screwed" in clock-wise) removing the brake fluid res. cap will make it easier to push in, but make sure it's back on b4 pressing on the pedal.
if the piston has trouble moving in and out or looks crooked, replace the caliper and bleed the brakes.
i replaced a rear seized caliper on my teg, cost about $40 (maybe $60, don't remember) and less than an hour, don't go to a shop and get ripped off.

Thats what it sounds like to me too dohclsvtec. I think I'm going to go ahead and get that rear caliper replaced. How long did you go on with the noise?

95db: I'm going to be doing the job myself. I just called and it was 70$ for the part from Discount Auto Parts. Anyone know of a place that I can get one cheaper?

I think that i might be have this same problem starting. It seems that my left rear caliper is hanging up and burning the pads as i can smell it burning i think.Im not sure if it is the parking brake or the caliper but it smells like burnt pads to me. If anyone knows if i am having the same problem arising please let me know.If so what should can i do to prevent it from getting to the point where it squeals all the time and eats my rotor and pads.

This is a common problem actually from what I have found on tegs. It is usually the rear calipers that seize up after a while. If you use your e-brake a lot this could become a problem because it could get hung up and not release all the way. Some go earlier than others I guess depending on many factors.

I have a similar problem with my 96 actually. I have to take a dirt road paved with rocks on a daily basis to get to town and back, and at first I thought the sound was just my pads or the seize problem, but when I took it apart a rock fell to my feet. It had been stuck between the rotor and heat shield and was making a high pitch grinding noise. I also had a squeal in both front brake areas and when I pulled them apart 2 more rocks. No sound for a week driving on only paved roads (just moved) ..

I think you can reach in with a long screwdriver and knock them out if that is your problem. No permanent damage, just some small scratches on the rotors. Maybe I'm just lucky.

Left vehicle up and spin wheel to see if it spins freely. If it has any drag then the caliper is locking up the pad on either the inner or outer pad.

it sounds like your caliper is frozen. you might not have to replace your pads if they arent down to there wear markers. take your tire off and loosen the little bleeder screw on top of the caliper. take out the pins and pull out the pads. there should be a round thing that presses on the pad. if it is stickin out then it is a frozen caliper more than likely. thats what happened on my jeep. i sprayed some wd40 on it and pushed it back in and it still works fine. try that and see what happens
