The dealer wanted $129 plus taxes to do this service. Thats per axle but we know its on the rear. No way, I can pull the wheel and calipers myself and have a go at them. Then go out and buy a case of beer and have dinner out.
Its been so hot and humid that the sweat pours off me in a half hour. I'll wait until its cooler so I won't have to rush. A lot of pads these days have a bevel (tappered at both ends) I don't think these rear ones do. If not I was going to take the edge off the rear side for sure with emery paper, course grit of and maybe rough the surface of the pad with it as well.
It never does it going forward only reverse and never when warm or hot after driving. That is why I think its something to do with the trailing edge of the pad. Maybe the calipers have a design problem. I hope its not a Teves issue like the Grand Cherokees had for years. Many were swapped due to warping.
This Compass started doing it when I got it the dealer at 29k and They are way out of town and I though it was covered by warranty, NOT so I am stuck with it now or at least for now.
