Default Squeaking brakes?

Anyone else have had this problem?
From about 15000km (about 10000 miles) the truck have hade som "squeeqing" from the brakes, coming and going.
The problem is getting more and more loud. The truck now has about 22000 miles (35000km) on the meter.
It's a lot easier to hear it when I have the Windows rolled down...

I've talked to the dealer and they have not seen/heard the problem when it has been in for regular service.
Have anyone else hade this problem?
Any Idéas?

Squeeking? Get yourself some antisqueek for the back of the pads and some caliper grease. Remove the calipers and put the antisqueek on the back of the pads (let sit for 10 min) then reinstall the pads. Use the caliper grease to carefully grease the slides and guides.

Don't know the correct word for it, but when i brake, especially when I slow down and almost stops, and just before the truck stops, there's a noise coming from the brakes.

Assuming your pads are not worn out, it is just the pads rattling. Get some anti-squeak and that should take care of it

My breaks squeak when I break in reverse, but I'm sure thats because they need to scuffed up a bit.

I had that issue when I bought mine at 22,000mi. I work at a garage so I turned the rotors (they were pretty warped for 22k). Also put some sandpaper down on a flat bench and scuffed the pads up. Then reassmbled everything with a bit of brake lube on the slides and back of the pads. No problem since then in the 3,000 I put on it.

Try making a couple hard panlc type stops from 60 to 0 . Sometimes that will clear any imbedded grit from the pads. Its not been a issue on these trucks.

I had the same/simliar noise and refused to believe my pads were finished with only 47500 kms so yesterday I popped off the wheel and caliper and looked closely at the pads. I noticed that the pads had a groove in them, well one did anyway the other one needed to be cleaned. With everything off i sprayed some brake cleaner on pads and on both sides of rotor. I haven't heard the squeal since. My sugestion be safe than sorry, check pads, if finsihed, replace them. If you still have enough left, clean them good and reinstall.
