The problem: A squealing can be heard emanating from the front brakes under the following conditions: while moving forward or backward, applying light pressure to the brake pedal, after the vehicle has been sitting overnight (cold), at speeds less than 10 mph and while turning. This is due to faulty front brake caliper hardware not stopping pad vibration while the vehicle is in motion.

Corrective action: On vehicles displaying squealing front brakes, dealers will replace the front brake caliper hardware and inspect the pads for abnormal wear.
