Noise from front Driver side.

Hello everyone I have a 2018 SXT.. I can’t tell if I’m being picky or not.. but for about the past 2 months I started hearing a noise coming from my front left tire.. I took my car to the dealership yesterday and the service rep claims he couldn’t hear the noise based on a video I recorded... I am just curious if anyone could listen to the video and listen for the high pitched squealing noise and provide any solutions as to what the problem could be.



Also I took the car to the same dealership the same issue and they said it was fixed by replacing my two front brakes this did not help by the way.

Also in order to hear the noise I don't have to touch the gas or the brake the car is usually just coasting... and only time I usually hear the noise is after the car has been parked for an hour or more. It also doesn't happen every time.

Towards the end over the wind noise I heard a couple of short duration high pitched noises. My first thought is brake squeal.



Not clear from your posts if the car is a new or used car.



Regardless, the front brakes have been replaced.


Have you bedded in the brakes?


What I do is find a stretch of as deserted road/highway as possible and take the car up to speed, higher is better, but don't break any traffic laws.


When safe to do so, apply the brakes very hard to really slow the car down. How much? Slower is better but avoid bringing the car to a stop. Release the brakes and quickly accelerate up to speed again then apply the brakes again. Repeat one more time.


I found found with new brakes while the braking improves after each slow down the improvement drops off and I didn't notice any real improvement after the 3rd time.


After the last braking event be sure you drive the car long enough to give the brakes time to shed the considerable heat that builds up. This is very important. If you don't cool the brakes and if you happen to bring the car to a stop with the brakes still hot this can result in a transfer of brake pad material to the rotor surfaces. Because this transfer of some brake pad material is only where the hot pads touch the rotors the coefficient of friction of the rotor is different in places and under braking the brakes will "pulse". The only way to address this is to resurface or replace the rotors.

With headphones, I can hear the squeaks throughout the vid (kind of sounds like a cricket signing but higher pitch). Do you have uphill start assist activated through the uconnect by any chance?

Thank you for the feedback I thought I was going crazy for a bit.


Rockster I will definitely be trying these steps you provided for me to see if this goes away..


ChallyTatum I do have uphill start enabled at the moment.

Try deactivating it and see if the squeaks go away.
