I've got brand new rotors and breaks and they're squeeling/squeeking when I stop. Don't know if they're glazed over or something. Is there something I can do to clean them or something to make them to stop making noise??

Can't remember the brand but got them from orielys. They are gold ceramics. They perform great and have no dust which is what I was after, but.....

The reason I ask is that I have Napa pads and they squeak as well. You can try taking them off and using a sanding block on the face of the pad. Clean everything and re grease with brake/caliper grease and hope that takes care of it. I have done it twice and mine still squeak. A friend of mine told me the high end napa pads will squeak no matter what.

Just bed them in....do three 45mph hard stops (till about 10mph) one after the other....drive a few miles for cool down then do three hard stops from about 65mph. Cruise for a few miles of cool down and see how they perform after that.

I had the same problem, after a week or so and bedding the squeak went away.
