    Replaced brake pads on front of my 99 accord two weeks ago. I used the best Bendix pads
    my local parts house offered. The brakes work well but now I get a brake fart or scrubbing
    sound when you take your foot off the brake to ease forward, like when waiting in line to exit
    a crowded parking lot. I pulled it back apart tonight and everything looks ok. I hear it the most
    from the LF brake. Any suggestions? Could this be cheapo pads causing this? I cleaned every
    thing well and used anti-squeal grease. I have replaced pads on other cars many times without
    this problem. The rotors are near perfect. Thanks for the help.

    This phenomenon is more-or-less normal and is most felt with an automatic
    transmission. Aftermarket pads will accentuate it.

    If you push a bit more softly on the pedal at lights or waiting in line,
    the noise will be reduced.

    There's no real problem but for the noise. If it really bothers you,
    replace the pads with dealer ones at the next pad change, otherwise don't
    worry about it.
