something i discovered accidentally that seems to help - when washing off the brake dust from the wheels, spray the brake rotors with water (make sure rotors are COLD! - could warp or crack otherwise). then immediately go for a quick drive and dry the rotors with repeated hard application of the brakes. i usually accelerate to 50-60 and brake hard enough to get into ABS, and repeat 5-6 times. obviously, find a safe place/time to do this! this procedure seemed to clear all visible glazing i had on the rotors and made the squeal go away. hope this helps.

: I drove just 250 miles so far, my brakes started "talking",
: squealing noise, even on mild pressure, coming to a stop light at low speeds, and at parking...
: Anyone of the top remember the solution, does this involve changing the pads, or... heck! I'll try cleaning the brake dust this weekend...
