Have Toyota Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello...welcome ad thank you for using justanswer.
I need to know a bit more about this noise , is it more noticeable when the vehicle is cold ,like when you first start driving ?
Did you do a brake job lately ,like a couple thousand miles ago ?
Does the noise stops if you step on the brake ?
Is the noise there only if you apply the brakes ?
Let me know.
Once the brakes were done not too long ago I am suspecting that the noise is coming from the brake pads,usually they have a coating (paint) on the side of the pad that after a few thousand miles becomes hard like a blade and starts making that noise ,it is more noticeable when you first start driving .
I would try to find out if the noise is coming from front or rear or if not sure ,just remove the pads that were done last and sand paper the edges of the frictional side of the pad.
Also once you pull it apart ,take a look for any signs or marks of anything rubbing on the rotor or backing plate (metal clips that hold the brake pads)
Hi there...have you work on your vehicle ?
