Question best way to get rid of brake sqeak?

I only have 9K on my gt, but the brakes are sqeaking. Pads are fine, and everything seems pretty clean. I don't want to start spraying crap all over the calipers/rotors. Is it possible that the rotors or pads are glazed?

Do rotors have groove on them? If so, then have them resurface the rotors.

If I do get some squeek with brakes, I would do some fairly hard braking or ride the brake a bit. Most of the time, squeek will be gone. But I am not sure if this will be a correct way to get rid of the noise though. you can try at your own risks.

Since you are still under warranty your dealer should fix this problem for you.

If your dealer is as crappy as mine and you won't let them touch your car ever ever ever again then I would suggest getting some brake parts cleaner from Autozone (or similar store) and following the directions on the bottle.

That should help for 5-10 minutes or so.

I have learned to live with squeaky brakes after putting on the axxis metal master pads. They squeak, I live with it. I consider it an additional warning that Marc is coming to a stop so the person behind Marc should stop too.
