I have a really gh pitched squeal coming from rear brakes.

Customer Question

I have a really high pitched squeal coming from rear brakes. The brakes and rotors were just replaced about 5000 miles ago by the dealer. I'm thinking it might have to do with the parking brake, but I am not sure where to start.

Hi im kevin do they squeak all the time or literally just when using footbrake ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

when just using the footbrake. Very high pitch. Never had an Audi before, but also never heard a squeal that high.

Expert:  Kevin replied 1 year ago.

Ok if its only when braking that rules out handbrake .first you need to see if there is any unevenness on the rotors any lip on the edges towards top or bottom of pads( this will cause high pitched squeal) .check for any difference on colour to disc redness on edges?
