Squeeky Brakes on F150

Hi,

I have a 2003 F150 Supercrew. When the brakes are damp, they make a lot of
noise when brakes are depressed to stop while backing up. Has anyone else
noticed this problem? It has been like it since I bought it new in June
2003.

My dealer says there is no problem. I have spoken to another owner who has
the same truck. He has noticed it too.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

My 02 SuperCrew does it too...all you can do is turn the radio up full blast

Re: Squeeky Brakes on F150

It may be possible that some grease or oil may have gotten on the brakes or
the brake pads are real cheap. I bought some for my 99 from Autozone that
squeaked from day 1. I kept them for about a month and then bought some at
another parts store and they did not squeak. To eliminate the oil/grease,
clean the brakes good with a brake cleaner and use some sand paper to go
over the rotors and pads. If it still squeaks, replace them. I hope this
helps.

When I was working in "the trenches" we would put anti-sieze on the
back of the pads and chamfer (grind an angle) on the edges of the
pads. For some reason the square edge made thing squeal

Worked 95% of the time

Which, it should be noted, is common now on replacement pads.

If doing yourelf, need only be done on leading edge, per given rotation.

Never used anti sieze, but yep, chamfering them helps immensely. I never tried it,
but maybe some of that "blue goo" brake noise compound may help. (On the backs of the
pads, of course).

Well if he drives the truck so that he doesn't have to back up, he won't
have the problem either.

My '02 SuperDuty makes a really loud groaning noise when brakes are
wet (like right after a wash, haven't seen it when it's raining) and
I'm backing up slowly. Goes away once the brakes are warm and dry.

Yeh, I've got an '04 F-150 doing the same thing.

I asked a co-worker knowledgeable about such things, and he suggested
the same thing about the edges of the pads. Or, he said, just live with it.

Never bothered to fix it. Didn't bother me all *that* much. Eventually
went away on its own...
