    I have a "chirping" sound coming from my rear passenger tire and I cannot figure out what it is. My brake pedal also squeaks whenever I press down on it. Anyone else have these problems or know of any solutions?

    Just a couple of ideas: parking brake adjustment, pad wear indicator, lube back of pads anti-squeal/chatter, caliper "tuneup", and rusty dust shield.

    My brake peddle squeaked like mad on my jeep. Under the dash, you will see a "plunger" that the brake pushes against. It has a rubber seal around it. I squirted some lube in it, and it has been silent since. Not sure about the rear.
