when cold (i've only noticed it at 25F and below) my brakes squeal a bit when i'm backing up. anyone else get this? know of any TSB's out on it?

it's not a huge deal, but i'd still like to get it fixed.

I have the same problem with mine. I thought it might be brake dust. It's everytime i back up. It would be nice to know if there are any tsb's on that. :confused:

Yup, just took mine in for the second time for this issue. They keep telling me it is brake dust, but it is getting rediculous and I am tired of pulling into spots and stopping with a new truck that sounds like it needs new brakes. I think it is time for us to call Toyota and get someone's attention about this matter.

I asked if any tsbs on it but they said no.

Same here, mine does the same thing. Only when backing up, and first thing in the morning. I have 13,100 on my truck, so the break in thing is out the window! I think it's the type of break pad they put on the truck :confused: I guess we'll find out.

I thought I might need new brakes, since I have 22K on the truck already and drive in congestion a lot. But, I think it only does the squeal when I'm backing out and its cold.

My guess is that its crappy pads...I'll probably just replace in about 5K and forget about it.

Same here, squeals everytime I back up in the morning. Except it doesnt squeal after I've driven it for awhile, or I let it warm up an ungodly amount of time. Only seems to squeal when its below freezing though.

Every truck I have ever owned, the brakes squealed slightly when cold.

My Tacoma included.

Especially when applying brakes in reverse when cold, I think because rear brakes are mainly used. Forward movement uses mostly front brakes. 90% of the time you use mainly front brakes.

that dealership is full of crap. the only thing i can really come up with is if the primary shoes in the drums just need to wear in or something. it really shouldn't be anything with the disc brakes, as pads are not directional at all, so if they were going to squeal, they'd squeal in more than just reverse.

I wonder if the 05/06 Tacoma brake pads are a common size and can be upgraded to a different brand or model?

I don't have a daily squeal. On the rare occasion that I don't drive my truck for a few days I might get an initial squeak out of them. Then again after a day or two of sitting, the rotors have a light layer of rust on them.
