Squealing noise when brake pedal released.

When releasing my brake pedal (mostly at lower speed and when first turned on) there is an extremely loud squealing noise. Completely stops when the brake is pressed and starts again when the brake is released. It seems to stop after about 10 minutes or so. Any advise would be gratefully accepted as im useless at finding faults!!!

Re: Squealing noise when brake pedal released.

You need to find out where the noise is coming from. Do you have a large car park (supermarket?) nearby where you can get the noise to occur and have someone listen to each wheel while you drive slowly?

It could be a brake caliper sticking but if you can narrow it down to which wheel (assuming it is coming from the brakes) then you can take the wheel off and investigate further.
