Asked by ladyinmaryland Apr 08, 2014 at 10:54 PM about the 2009 Volvo XC90

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2009 XC90.  Since Dec 2012, I've been experiencing the brake squealing from
the front left wheel.  The dealer worked for months to identify the issue, replacing the
brakes and rotors at their cost.  In May 2013 I gave up for frustration.  The issue has
been persistent.  I finally took the vehicle to another volvo dealership where the brakes
and rotors looked fine with some wear on the left which was replaced.  The service tech
drove and did not hear anything but advised me that longer drives would tell if the
problem was corrected.  It was not.  It does not matter whether the car  is driven in cold
or warm weather the only consistency is the squeal.  Has anyone else been
experiencing this issue?

Sounds like wheel bearings

Know nada about cars. The squeal is only heard when I brake. Still a possible bearing source?

A Small pebble will cause a squeal since you only hear it on the left.

Yes I have been having this exact problem with my 2009 xc90. The problem started about 6 months after buying the car. It's not the rotors nor the pads. It's the design of the car this is a common problem with this vehicle and Volvo won't do anything about. I have had so many problems with this car and my two previous xc90s that I am looking at legal action. If you search the net you will see the frequent issues with power drains and squealing brakes. As for someones answer about a pebble in my braking system I was told that crap also. After 4 rotors and many brake pads I guess it's a ghost pebble.

I am at the dealership now for the umpteenth time dealing with the squeeling front left brake. My kids are so embarrassed because you always know when I'm coming!! Sad to see there is no solution. Ugh!
