Squeak - stops when gently apply brake?
 
Greetings!
Had my 03 TJ a year and luv it. Since I bought it I noticed a loud squeak just when I start rolling -worse in cold weather. It lasts at minute or two in parking lot speed and I'm not overly concerned - its a jeep and noise is part of the deal.
Just want to see if anyone has ideas of what could be causing it. Seems to cease when I ease gently on the brake and its not there at all when I pick up speed. Any ideas thoughts welcome.

Also, apologies to Jeep wavers - was not sure of etiquette but now on board.
Cheers!

Correct. If it stops when you press on brakes it should be brake pads need to be Replaced..

Check you pads might have to be changed.

Hey Irish, I actually have had this noise pop up again in the past week. I had it a long time ago and fixed it (though I don't seem to remember how???) but, I would start with your pads as mentioned, thats the most likely place. Is the noise front or rear?

Welcome, could be pad indicators.

The noise is from the front - a few revolutions of the front wheels until they seem to warm up and I gain speed.

Mine comes from the rear it's like a slow squeaky hamster wheel until it "heats up" and goes away. Any fixes yet?
