Back right wheel squeaking?

After about a month of driving my 335i I started to notice about 2 days ago, when I'm at a complete stop and I start to accelerate my back right wheel starts to squeak until I hit about 15-20 mph and it subsides after that, any idea whats going on?

I would do some hard stops from 40-50mph down to 20mph or so. Just enough to throw you forward but not engage the ABS.

If noise is still there, check the dust shield and parking brake shoes.

It's common for the shoes to rub against the dust shield and make squeaks.

It could also be the pad wear sensor rubbing against the rotor. Nothing you can do about that other than removing the sensor from the pad and tying it off somewhere. You have to manually monitor pad thickness then

Appreciate the quick response, I'll go and do that stuff once I'm off work.

Squeaky wheel

Hi. I have exactly the same problem/situation.

Did you manage to resolve it? Did the "hard stop" suggestion work?

Thanks!

Matt

I had the same issue and resolved it by doing the following:

New pads (Posi-Quiet Ceramic) w/ceramic lube on backing plate & points
Cleaned caliper and caliper retainer bracket
Ceramic lube on caliper grease points
New Rotors (Slotted PowerStop)
New pad sensors
Cleaned parking brake shoes & mechanism
Greased parking brake springs and lever mech
Cleaned dust shield
Cleaned inner wheels

My goal was to kill squeaks and chirps--mission accomplished thus far. When I pulled the old rear pads I was surprised how close to the end they were (1/2 centimeter remained). You may be in the same boat.

I had a similar issue, but mine came from the rear passenger side. My theory is that the pad rubs very slightly on the rotor due to the lateral runout of the rotor, and the material of the pad contributes to the noise. I solved my problem by replacing the rear pads with Akebono ceramic pads and AC Delco rotors. Squeak free for over 15k miles now.
