How do I fix sqeaky brakes and a low speed

Asked by Nov 19, 2013 at 05:08 AM about the 2005 Alfa Romeo 147

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When brakes get hot they squeal at a slight touch of the brake pedal, not with hard braking

2 Answers


Inspect the pads and rotors for abnormal wear. Take the pads out of the caliper and clean everything up and relube the caliper pins and contact points, and reinstall.


I would change the pads to a more expensive, better material- usually, squealing is because the pad composition is too hard- get something nice from an Alfa specialist
