Hi Robin, A broken boot would not cause this noise, even if they saw the boot ripped open they should have told you so you could repair it properly.
Cheap pads also tend to be very squeaky. A few weeks ago, my car began making a grinding noise on the front passenger side. I came a stop and went to make a turn but ended up skidding the back tire a bit somehow. I bought it from a mate in May 2017 and it was sitting for 1 month unused in the open, got rained on a bit.
Noises Caused by Rust on Rotors.Why Your Brakes or Wheels Squeak
Sign In Join. Spray er' down with some brake cleaner and see if it helps. I Hope you made it home OK, If the noise is that bad you really should have it towed, you could have total brake failure if you let it go too long. If it does get worse, have someone check out the brakes just to be safe.
Usually this is because the brake pad wear indicator is touching the rotor. This service allows you to sign up for or associate a Google AdSense account with HubPages, so that you can earn money from ads on your articles.
My 1999 road king had tapered"timkin" type wheel bearings which were easy to grease and long running and a tell tale squeak would let me know they needed greased. Its not like i live in the sticks either I live in the city. What about a woo woo woo noise when coming to a stop?

Do you have any ideas? I never changed back brakes.
I recommend checking that... I have seen where the e-brake cable will get caught on something and cause the brakes to drag.

Or the anti-rattle clip could be off center and touching the rotor. Either cheap brake pads, or the brake wear indicator is hitting the rotor.
