135I Brake Squeel



Hey all,

Starting last year my brakes have been squeeling a lot. I originally took the car to the dealer who told me I still had 50% brake life left in the pads. My car also doesn't have any brake alets showing on the dash.

My question is why are they squeeling? Is this normal?

Check your calipers, most of the time the squealing comes something loose, see if any of the anti-rattle clip is loose or anything else that might be worth replacing such as secure screws, give it a good cleaning and apply anti squeal solution and that should just solve it.

If you can't do that yourself, might as well get new pads while at it since you will be paying for labor.
