Hi all. Just recently purchased a 2007 RR SC. Amazing vehicle. One issue i am having is brake squeel at low speeds. I did use the search button but didn't see any solutions. Are there any known DTB/TSB's out there?
TIA!
Jay

have you checked your pad wear ?

one item that people miss when chnaging brakes is to check that the caliper "pins" have free movement, if they are stuck this can cause squeal as well as judder

Congrat's on the 2007 RR SC, they are a terrific vehicle!
I agree with "azjulian", also brake pad dust can coat the slide pins and even contact area between pad and caliper piston, causing a squeal, flushing the pad and caliper area with water and a brush to try remove excessive brake dust can sometimes work, failing that, taking the pads out of the caliper and washing the caliper piston area with a stiff brush (not damaging the piston boot), cleaning pad slides/pins with a wire brush/emery tape and replacing the pads can work also. Low speed squeal seems to happen with european vehicles due to the excessive disc pad "dust" from my experience.

apply a little copper grease on the back of the pads, that should help, be careful not to get any on the discs or friction side of the pads

The brakes on my 2009 Range Rover Supercharged screetch like crazy quite often.. i've taken the truck to the dealership several times for this problem.. they apparently chamfered the pads or something last time and im gettin a knocking sound now wen i hit the brakes a bit faster than normal.. also, the screetch it still there.. apparently there is an upgrade to the brembo brakes that they may be putting in to solve this issue, they said somethin about land rover knowing about this problem in some vehicles.. waiting until next week for an answer..
