Squealing is generally caused by the brake pads vibrating in the calipers,
particularly the outside pad. I'm surprised, because I thought Ford now used ceramic
pads on their new vehicles.
Anyway, the fix is simple and cheap. Get a small tube of Permatex Disc Brake
Anti-Squeal. Remove the outside pad, and clean the contact surfaces well. Place the
blue goop in a light film in the contact are. Re-assemble, and let sit overnight.
That should do it.
