Squeaky Brakes - 99 SL500 (51K Mi)
I have had a my 1999 SL500 for 9 years. The brakes have always squeaked when I lightly apply them while backing up slowly. I changed out brake pads with MB brand brakes from the dealer...no help. Recently they are incessantly squeaking when I lightly apply the brakes in the forward direction at very slow speeds.. VERY EMBARRASSING when I pull up at a nice restaurant! My mechanic suggested I hit the rotor with a car washer. No help. I have confirmed they are the front because I slowly applied the emergency brake and no squeal. Also car is 100% garage kept and covered. Only driven 3-4K miles per year..PLEASE HELP!! Thanks in advance..
