New brake pads on Tundra squeaking
2014, 100,000 miles

Installed new OEM, Toyota pads, by real mechanic shop, and front pads are squeaking when coming to a stop.

Rotors are "slick" and clean.

Yes I have sprayed the rotors with WD-40 and squeak comes back in a day or two.

Do I need to do some extreme power breaking on the Interstate to break them in ?

Hell no!!! You need to break-in new pads gently without slamming them on.

The only 2 things that comes to mind for the squeaky are: they weren't OEM pads but metallic OR the rotors really needed to be turned.

re: New brake pads on Tundra squeaking
Just had my front and rear brakes done on my '13 with 60K miles. I could hear the wear indicators squeaking before they were replaced, now not a sound immediately after pad replacement. Something might be off if yours are making noise. They did resurface the rotors, which I know some say is a con or possibly detrimental, but they don't charge less for not doing it and I got tired of arguing with the service rep.

err, why?

With new pads you need to heat them up pretty good to transfer pad material to the rotor. Should be instructions online. As far as the WD-40 im not sure what to tell you to do about that.

I bought the pads myself at Team Toyota and they are the same pads on it when new. So its not a different pad.

Replace pads with oem.
Use disc brake quite.
Clean and lubricate pins with
proper lube.

NEVER SPRAY WD40 ON BRAKES!
Or any other lubricate for that matter.

I don't know about tundras, but for my fj all the online reviews said to reuse the factory anti squeal piece and ditch the one that comes with whatever brake pads you get.

I did that and have never had a squeal.

They sell then online.

Not sure if serious? Why the hell would you spray something that is designed to create friction to stop with a lubricant designed to do the opposite?

I would get some brake cleaner and hose those suckers down asap.

Have you tried greasing the back of the pads? You know, the part that doesn't touch the brake disc?

Toyota pads, like yamaha pads, squeak.

Nature of the pad material. They last forever

re: New brake pads on Tundra squeaking
Yea I read about the CRC stuff, to put on the "back" of the pads.

Isnt the squeak from the pad making contact with the rotor

On the "front" of the pad ?

re: New brake pads on Tundra squeaking
not usually, its usually the back of the pad rubbing against the piston on the caliper plus the metal on the caliper slides. You might have to start over with new pads. Not sure what putting WD40 on pads and heating them does.

Not always. Pad material makes a difference as well.

this part is a lie, you NEVER just change pads and that is why its squeaking, jackleg work by know nothing shade tree mechanics.

pads and rotors need to be replaced at the same time. rotors only cost $30 and are designed to be replaced every time the pads wear out.

On my 06 F150 RWD front rotors are 90-150 each. Front rotor, wheel bearings, studs, ABS sensor is all one assembly and you need a torque wrench that goes to 295 ft. lbs. The non reuseable spindle nut is about $15 each.

you only use a 90 weight gear oil on rotors, wd 40 goes in the transmission

re: New brake pads on Tundra squeaking
You don't want your rotors to be slick. If they're glossy and smooth to the touch then they're glazed and you need to turn or replace them. But rotors are fairly cheap and you're better off replacing them than turning them.

Actually that's not true at all. If you are running the same pads you don't need to change the rotors. If you are running a different pad material then you should have the rotors turned. Not all rotors are $30 bucks.
