    I hear a squeaking but not when I'm applying the breaks. What could that be? It's occurs seldomly and it's like a metal on metal sound while the tire rotates. Thanks for all the advice and help!

    6:19 - Could it not be sanded enough to remove all the groves? Sure, that'd take a while (at least by hand), it looks like there's enough material left to sand it smooth and still get plenty of life out of that pad.

    Soapy Wooder? That's funny. Did you all notice how he labeled the Soapy Water bottle? It does sound like"wooder" when he pronounces water.

    Thanks Chris! My car is making a chirping noise as I drive, it sounds like crickets. The tire shop has replaced the brakes and rotor twice, but the chirping sound continues. It is only as the car is driving and it makes some chirping when I apply the brakes lightly. Is this just a matter of lubrication? It is driving me crazy! Thank you so much!

    I worked at a Monty Wards as a service writer in the 1980s.After explaining to a customer why they need $400 in brake repairs, her response was"What's the cheapest thing I can do to stop hearing the squealing?""Well, you can turn the radio up."..."Can I speak to your manager please."Job went downhill from there.
