Thanks. I called a dealer today and asked he had heard of this. He indicated he had and thought it was a bushing that needed lubrication. Anyhow, I will heed your advice and make sure the squeak is heard by all.Eric L. said:Very important - don't just drop your car off at the dealer and say "the brake pedal makes noise." Make sure to take a technician with you on a testdrive (with you driving) and reproduce the noise so they can hear it. Otherwise, you might end up with "could not duplicate" on your repair order, and a wasted day at the dealer. Good luck.
I'm glad you told me that. I was going to head to the dealer around 3:30. I will definitely bring that up!gibby26 said:I have the same brake pedal squeak. Took it in for routine oil change yesterday, and the tech said the squeak is a common problem, and there's no lubrication fix - have to order a new pedal assembly (which he did). He said it takes about a week to get the parts, and about 2 hours to install.
So I took the car in and the lube didn't work (big surprise there!). They told me I'd need to drop it off so they could take the pedal assembly out and try to figure out where the squeaking was coming from and better lubricate it.gibby26 said:I have the same brake pedal squeak.

I called them a few weeks back and the service advisor said "Squeaky brake pedal.. happens a bunch.. just a dry bushing. Bring it in and we'll put some silicone lubricant on it for ya. Fix it right up". Well I get there and the gent is puzzled as to why the squeaking is not going away.. said it always "worked on the squeaky clutches". Hmmm.ekaxel said:"No lubrication fix"
Did he say specifically what part was squeaking and why it couldn't be fixed by lube? I'm trying to avoid the pain of taking my car in twice (once for them to come to the "new pedal assembly" determination and second for installation). Thanks for any feedback!gibby26 said:New brake pedal assembly installed - no more squeaking. Tech told me lube wouldn't work - I guess he was right.
