squeaky noise at low speeds

Does anybody get a squeaky noise at low speeds from a dead stop? Not sure what it is but it's coming from my tires. Thank you for any input.

Squeaky noise when going over small bumps?

I get that from my right rear wheel. I took it four times to two dealers and I still have it. It was gone for about six months but it came back.

I had that problem too. They changed the brake pads and nothing since. Maybe get them changed? Its under my maintenance plan so I figured it couldnt hurt

i have the same problem. it is not coming from your brakes right? you don't necessarily have to hit the breaks for the noise to arrise. I have no idea what it is, it happens most but not all of the time and it's really freakin annoying. have ahd it for a while.

Yeah, I took it like 3-4 times before they changed the rear brakes.

yeah its the brakes, I had the worst time trying to replicate the sound for the dealer though as it does it off and on.

Mine is doing it yet again....got it fixed last fall and they replaced the rear brake sensor and it was gone for awhile until recently. Soooo, my car goes back on Friday to fix the problem again. Hope this time around they just change out my brakes.

There's no fixing it. Had the dealer replaced the pads over 5 times, the problem still came back. The last time they changed out all the rotors and brake pads and now the noise came back again. I just learned to live with it.

It's kind of embarrassing, driving around in a Bimmer that squeaks, but there's nothing I can do about it.

sounds like your parking brake pads in the rear are adjusted too tightly, they are brake shoes that ride on the inside surface of the rear rotor, if they are adjusted tight they will be constantly rubbing and squeaking on the rotor.

Could be the e-brake sticking...

if the squeaky noise is not constant, rather it corresponds to the "bounce" (either via bumps or the weight shift in the car) of the car, then most likely it's due to the brake sensor coming in contact with the rotor. This is a well known issue, and there is no permanent solution for it, yet. If you are still under warranty some dealers maybe willing to replace the pad for you which will alleviate the issue for a little while (until the pad is worn down to where the sensor touches again) and the noise will return.
