      Rear Break Squeal at 6k

      Hey Guys,

      I noticed over the past couple of weeks my rear brakes are starting to squeal.

      I made an appointment with the dealer next week for them to have a look.

      This is definitely not from not signaling when switching lanes (that is my BIGGEST pet peeve).

      Are there know issues with premature brake pad wear with the car?

      Thanks....

      I’ve got 20k kms on mine and brakes started squealing already after a few thousand kms. Seems to only happen in hot weather though.

      This morning the squeal was very intermittent. It squealed once while coming to a full stop and then didn't squeal at all for the rest of my trip.

      I am going to record it and show it to the tech next week - as it will most likely not make any squeal at all at the dealer....

      I thought Volvo's don't have any brake squeal or any other warning that the pads are near done. Couple of folks here some with SPA cars went metal to metal with the rotors.

      Maybe on newer XC60s they introduced the brake squeal (and about time really) but there is a known problem with stones from the road finding their way between the rotors and the metal plates covering them, and creating a squealing sound.

      A lot of XC60s had faulty pads/rotors. My front set were replaced at like 9k miles. And my rears are now acting up too. Could be your issue as well?

      Just a small update - I drop by the dealer this morning, they said that there is a TSB on this issue and they are replacing the rear rotors and pads. They told me to see if it comes back and if so they will also replace the fronts too....

      Fingers crossed...
