I hope I am not repeating old information, but I have been having brake noise when in reverse, and finally decided to call the dealer service department about it. He said a service bulletin was issued for this problem, and requires the replacement of the front rotors, and some clips (covered under warranty). He stated it is NOT a safety issue, but a noise issue.

I don't know if this is the appropriate place to post this, but wanted to get as many eyes on this as possible.

Looks like I get new rotors at 15,000 miles.

Could you please find out what the TSB number for the bulletin is??

THANKS!!

Mine has been doing this since I have had it. Only when I first back out of the garage in the morning or when I back up before leaving work. I figured it was just moisture. I think it happens to most FJ's. 37k miles

That is when I will get the noise, especially in the winter. He said is does have to do with the rotors being cold.

If I have a chance, I will call about the number of the bulletin, otherwise I will get it when I take it in Tuesday.

BTW, I was told that this is a same day fix. They did have to order the parts, so they can't get it in until next week.

I get the noise whenever I am at low speeds coming to a stop in forward to reverse. Almost as if something is lightly "clanking" on the brake's backing plate/dust cover.

This might be the TSB number
BR005R-07 SEP 07 Brakes - Front Brake Noise When Applied Backing Up

I've lubed the drive train and also checked alignment points for loose fasteners.

I get a slight squeal when backing up, but only after operating in the rain/snow. Is this the problem that is being addressed? Not a clunk or rattle?

It is for a "squeeking" sound when backing up. It wouldn't hurt to call and ask, although all I did was mention the squeeking when backing up, and they scheduled me for the fix.

I think most FJCs have this sound (not sure about 08s). What is the cause? I always thought that it was surface rust caused by moisture overnight. My FJC howls when I back up.

If it can be fixed sign me up :rocker:

The service tech didn't specify the cause, but said that the rotors need to be replaced. I will try to post more info after I get mine back Tuesday, unless somebody can get theirs in before then and post some info on it.

When I back out of the garage everytime, hot or cold and apply the brakes I hear one clank. I'm almost sure it is the caliper pistons hitting the brake pad. Or the brake pad hitting the rotor. Mine has done this for 2 years. Maybe I'll call my service guy and ask him about it.
