    If the brakes squeal and squeak it could be the quality of the brake pads or the surface of the brake rotors need to be resurfaced. Ca you identify if it coming from the front or rear wheels or even just one wheel?

    In addition to the above, the are pad lubricants that can be used on the brake pad baking plate to isolate the vibrations that cause brake squeal. Also, if you have 4 piston front calipers, M-B has vibration/noise reduction pads to fit in the caliper pistons to reduce noise.
