I have a 1998 Honda Civic Ex. My front brakes (pads/rotors/hardware) were replaced a little over a year ago.
Recently I started noticing a pulsing squeak when braking at very low speeds and brake pedal pressed about 1/4 of the way in.
Can’t hear it while hard braking. Also brake pedal does not vibrate when braking at high speeds which I’ve experienced before due to warped rotors.
The noise isn’t so much a metal on metal clicking it’s more like a squeak similar to a dry brushing making noise but it only happens when braking. If I press down on the suspension or turn the steering wheel I can’t replicate it.
Would seized caliper slide pins cause this? When the brakes were done silicone paste was used on the slide pins. Not sure if that matters but figured I’d include the info.
If it’s the brake pads shifting around, would it make a different noise other than I’m describing?
