Suspension, Brakes, Wheels, and Tires / Re: Rear brake banshee squeal
« Last post by j13welder on October 27, 2018, 10:07:03 PM »
Well I finally got the squeal to stop!  I put the stop squeal paste on the back plate of the bands. I let that dry. Then I put the shims back on and coated them with the same paste and let that dry as well.  Then I got a bottle of graphite bearing high temp brake grease and coated every metal point on the calipers and the metal edges on the pads. I put the pads back into the calipers, then coated the pins in the brake grease and put them in with the cotter pins and then put grease on the pins where it rubbed of from being slid through the holes on the pads.  In my unprofessional opinion I used more grease than should be necessary but the squeal stopped and the car stops fine so Iím calling it a win!  :mrgreen:

I had a 97 outback, the hatch handle bracket rusted up pretty well.  I ended up wire brushing in by it with a Dremel and greasing it well.  It was that or a junkyard bracket for me.

Newbs & FAQs / New here...daughter has a 2002 Outback

I know. I know. Another newbie looking for help! I do love subies and will have one of my own someday.

My daughter has a 2002 Outback Wagon with the rear hatch stuck. It's closed. The latch handle feels open. I asked her about it and she said that it was really stiff before and would stay in open position even with the hatch closed. Her and her boyfriend said that it's been a problem for a while. She's about to have a kid and wanted him to fix it. He's not to mechanical. Millineals!  :uglystupid2: They took it to one mechanic and he told them it needed a latch.

I did a little reading (here and here) and it seems that there is a plate that messes up too. This makes me wonder if it really does need a latch or what.

They really don't have much and can't really leave the car anywhere for long becase she carts him back and forth to work. I'll work on it.

Dot the pads fit tightly in the carrier ?  I've had to do some grinding on Hawk pads to get them to move right.  I've also started using permatex for lube instead of anti-seize.  Last, have you checked that the backing plate for the e-brakes hasn't rusted some and may tag the rotor ?  I've been battling that very recently on my Legacy.

Let me know if you get it sorted, I like to keep things in mid to check.  Good Luck!
