are 2004 911 rear breaks noisy?
Country: United StatesMake: PorscheModel: 911 CarreraYear: 2004
Just bought the car today - 24,000 mile 2004 in great condition. Rear brakes are loud (squeak) almost like a car on the brake warnings, but the rotors look fine and it appears that the pads have life left in them. Not a grinding sound, just a loud squeak at low speed.

HI,do they squeak only on low speed braking?how do the surface of rotors and pads look - dull flat finish, or shniy or glossy finish?
Only when braking going slow. . Dull flat finish on rotors.
Hi,Ok, squealing when braking is due to a few different reasons:rotors are glazedbrake pads are glazedbrake pad ant-rattle clips are loosebrake anti-squal shims are loose or missing.we know the rotors are not glazed as they have a dull finish.So, we need to check the pads. If shiny, then use some 100grit sandpaper to sand pad face to get rid of glazing.If ok, then the anti rattle clips and shims need to be checked and replaced if loose or missing.Please note, your Deposit doesn't constitute a payment.
