squealing sound when not applying brakes
As I back out of my driveway everyday, I hear a light squeal coming from the wheels (can't tell which one from inside the cabin) when NOT touching the brake pedal at all. The same kind of squeal you'd get from applying brakes when the pads are low. After driving a while, it seems it doesn't happen anymore the next time I reverse (ie. parked for 30 minutes and go again).
I think idrive says I still have over 10k left on the pads. Are the pads supposed to be touching when brakes aren't applied? Could it be something else?
