My Trailhawk Squeeks

Well I finally have my hawk in for the latest TSB and uconnect update. But also to fix a high pitched squeek from what appears to be from the front end. Been squeezing for two weeks now. Fingers crossed the tech hears it (I wear hearing aids and I definitely hear it) and it is a quick and easy (not to mention Warrantied) fix. Anyone else have a squeezing hawk?

I will update on what they find.

Mine squeaks when I get in/out of the car when the parking brake it on. It's like a chirpy, squeaky, creaky kind of noise

Well the dealer did not find anything the first time, but later that day that I got it back it was squeaking again. So I took it back in the next weekend. Again they heard nothing so I insisted on driving with the tech. Now he heard it. After some troubleshooting he found it to be the backseat behind the driver (I am hard of hearing so I could not localize where it was coming from well). He adjusted the seat some and it seems to have gone away. Weird since it didn't squeak the first 5,000 miles and no one has ever been in the backseat yet.

no idea. must be normal many have it. maybe wind noise would be my guess. taking it in doesnt generally do much good. i figure if something is wrong it will get worse then ill bring it in when problem is easy to find.

Mine too. Right Rear wheel, constant with wheel speed. Louder when a load is on the wheel. (turning left) When humidity is up I hear it with the window shut, louder when window is open, and really loud driving alongside a building. I think I'm going to try to figure it out myself as I don't think the dealer will give a ****.

This sound may be what I'm hearing but it only happens when I'm braking to come to a full stop... the sound I'm hearing sounds more like a low sonar, computer type beep though.

Got mine fixed today... If you have the squealing that sounds like one of the brake pads is worn down, this may help you.

Service says there was a piece of a metal bracket that started rubbing against the back of my rotor on one of my back wheels. I can't remember which one it was but I think it was passenger rear rotor that had the bracket rubbing. Left service today and the squeal is 100% gone!
