[:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)]*in brake noise won't go away...

Alright so i picked up my black 02 svtf back in october, right off the lot the breaks squeeled like ( ) loudly every time i put the slightest pressure on them...
So i took it back to them the same day, they looked at it and said they were brand new and they needed a break-in. Fine.
So now its February, and they brakes are STILL squeelin all the time, I have to put brake lubricant on every couple of weeks. My question is, is it more serious than this...anyone else have this problem?
ANND, what the hell should I do with the dealer, the cars under warranty, sounds like dick, and they say they are new and wont/cant fix them. Obviously it has to be something else....riight???

Thankss

Assuming these are Ford OEM parts...

Have them put a set of pads on, BUT INSIST THAT THEY NOT TURN THE ROTORS.
Sound should go away...

I was thinking that he may want to pull of the rotors and rough them up with some 40 grit sand paper.

Alot of times if you dont turn the rotors and do new pads the rotors will get a harmonic squeal when you apply the brakes.

I think that's true mostly if you change pad brands.

The only other thing that I can think of is Ford changed the brake pad compound.

I would be interested to know if he is putting lube on the retaining clips on the front pads. Those clips that insert into the grommet on the insides of both front calipers have some metal to metal points which need to be lubed as well and could cause some pretty loud vibrations as they are fairly thin and loose.
