View Full Version : Brake squeal on my a4

06-06-2017, 09:49 PM
So I just bought a 2001 a4 (quattro) and the brakes have recently been acting up, whenever I brake there is a loud squeak which is really bothering me. As far as I can tell its coming from all 4 corners. I have taken off the wheels to inspect the front brakes and they have lots of life left. There aren't any gouges on the rotors however they do have a pretty large lip. In addition to the squeaking, whenever I brake hard down steep hills, there is occasionally a loud vibration that shudders the car. Where should I even start? Should I go through and just clean everything thoroughly? Should I resurface the rotors? How have you all solved squeaky brake issues?
