Just noticed today that the sound is very noticeably lower when the car is cool... for about 20-25 minutes this morning there was almost no noise, but after that it became very loud...

please... any help?

Could it be that the self-adjustment mechanism of the disc brakes is shot?

I'd recommend you stick with OEM brake pads. Most modern day brake pads come with a Hardware Kit (Anti Rattle/ Squeal pin/kit) that are built to specs with the Disc rotors. The "cheen-cheen" in tech speak is referred to as "Brake squeal" due to the pads being "glazed". You have not mentioned the miles/Kms on your odometer. Depending upon the condition of your Brake Pads they would need to be " Resurfaced" and the rotors would need to be "machined" on an "On Car or Off Car Brake lathe".

No question of glazing ..! All pads OEM or Aftermarket are roughend with Sandpaper before being installed..! + Even if they are not a few spins will rough them

Default Screeching sound while braking

Note from mod - Threads merged.


I'm newbie here and am facing a problem with my Indica DLX (2004) model. Around 6 months back, I started to get a strange screeching sound (as that of metal rubbing against metal) whenever I braked so I immediately took it to Concorde motors (Dairy circle) where I was informed that the brake pads are worn out and need replacement.

I got the brake pads replaced but 1month back the sound reappeared and as the car was due for a service so I sent it Concorde motors (JP Nagar). However, I was informed that due to faulty alignment of brake discs, the disc has worn out slightly and though the damage is not serious but we recommend gettting the brake pads and discs changed.

I got the discs replaced and when I got the car back, the strange screeching sound while braking (as metal rubbing with metal) had altogether dissappeared and I was one happy guy.

However, the same noise reappeared last week and after rains. I'm thouroughly confused as to what exactly could be the problem. It would be great if the experienced and expert bhpians could help me out

Try a reliable workshop (not dealer) and clean the caliper assembly and see if the sound goes off, it might be just some dirt in the assembly especially with rains and all. If the brake pads are worn out again, then there seems to be a alignment issue with the disc fitting.

How many kms have you driven after the pad replacement?

noise also appears if there is no insulation (grease/padding) between the calipers and the pad. even is the pads are new. this has to be taken care of while installing the pads.

As the Brake pads were also cahnged along with the Disc (last month) and I have driven only 500km since then

The earlier thread primarily focuses on what after market brake pads were used and its ill effects which definitely is not the case here which made me dig deep in to what other reasons could be there for such a noise and thus the new thread.

While I do not think this is a case of bad service (because things are all right as soon as you get the vehicle back), there is likely to be a chance that something else has not been taken into consideration while fixing the problems.
It is likely that dust / something else has got into the pads during the monsoons.
Since several people are complaining about service at Concorde, you should try a different TASC.

Check if your front wheels are free, there will be minor resistance but when you turn the wheel by hand and leave it (force is required) it should rotate atleast one or two times. If its too tight then you have a stuck caliper and it needs attention. Usually a good overhaul will set things right.

500 km is way too short for wear to happen, so first determine if its worn out. You can inspect the pad yourself at workshop, once you remove it from calliper. A good pad will have even wear (flat) and will have atleast 5 mm of pad on top of the metal.

Suggest you stay with the car and see whats happening, will be a good learning also.

Post Noise from brakes of 2006 baleno

Guys i recently noticed a very strong noise(like the one u get....wen u try to pull the table or a chair)from my baleno.This problem usually occurs when u apply sudden brakes while parking the car....or once u pull the handbrake before the car is full stationery.So i went allianz automobiles in south delhi.First the service advisor told me its normal and is due to water....(coz of rainy season..but since i pursued him ....he got it checked in front of me...the mechanic replied...that the BRAKE CYLINDER of Right Hand Side tyre is worn out...so i asked him to replace it coz the car is still under warranty.....at first he replied that the part is out of stock...n then said...it would be available ina couple of dayz.....n wud cost 2200 bucks....
i got a shock since he told that Brake Cyliender does not come under warranty.....
