I have had this problem for a long time, I took it to two different places and each told me that the rotors are glazed. Anyone else have this problem? Anyone else have the noise? I only have 40k miles.

Squealing is never from rotor glazing it always is from vibration.

Use a new set of shims, they will prevent any vibration, if that does not work, try some silicon brake quit from CRC it works great.

I went to a Ray Bestos brake clinic where they told us these facts.

They basicly told us that a brake pad rubbing on a rotor will NEVER produce a squeal...

The squeal takes place from the back of the pad vibrating on the caliper.....interesting huh...

squeal

I had my car back from Toyota for a couple days, new rotors, pads, calipers, lines, the whole 9 yards.

I squeal like a mofo, but only if your braking on a slow roll.

Its freakin annoying and even embarrassing at times.

"SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAL" as you stop at a light, ppl stare.

:-\

Is this something the dealer should correct?

Brake squealing

They sell a copper paste that you apply to the back of brake the pad so that it kills the vibrations between the caliper an the pad. I have used it on several cars and it seems to elminate brake squealing pretty well.

First off the dealer should correct the problem...

Second if you have new shims and it still squeals try CRC Brake Quiet. Its a high temp red silicon you put on the back of the pads where they touch the caliper and eliminates all squealing...

I had the same problem on my Bimmer . . . $3.00 fixed it and have never had a problem since. You can get a can/tube/paste of brake quiet at just about any auto parts store. Toyota should have some also. But if a mechanic said it was due to glazing smack him in the face and call him a con. Its vibration, unless its your brake wear clips rubbing on the caliper then you need new pads but if they're new its due to vibration.
