Q: Brake Pedal on 2004 Ford Mustang

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
Love my Mustang, but one lingering problem...experiencing a grinding noise whenever I step on the brake pedal. Nothing wrong with the brakes, brake pads,etc... the grinding seems to be connected with the pedal bar itself. Any suggestions as to what is causing this?

I just looked to see if Ford have any Service Bulletin regarding brake noise from the pedal area but I suppose it is a good thing there are no TSBs for any Ford Mustang brake issues. I can only suggest kneeling and looking up at the brake pedal assembly from the driver's side with a flash light. Pressing the brake pedal see if you can locate the noise and lubricate it with a spray that has good lubrication qualities (WD40 isn't a great lubricant), some chain lubricant or lithium grease would be better.
