    creaking noise coming from the passenger side sounds like a cable that needs lubed. Or a twisting of the frame only with engine on will it make noise 2008 gen 2 at a stop or moving

    I have the same sound from my 2008. I'm suspecting it's from the rear brake drum

    Pretty common on other cars (Haven’t seen this on a Prius) for stuck caliber slider pins and/or pads to cause this.

    I started noticing the same thing a few years ago. My doctor says it's to be expected, considering my age.

    Stuck caliber slider pins and/or pads.

    If you take it to somewhere they will replace the pads and maybe rotors and also clean and lubricate everything (if they do proper job).

    Well The sound is coming from the Passenger side caliper so I removed the Brake fluid cap and remove the caliper and pushed the caliper back in Put it back together And the sound was gone 1st time I pressed Then returned So removed at this time press the brake pedal when it was out to push it out all the way (don't do this) now I have an ABS light and a VSC but at a stop now no sound but no Passenger front brake (stop on Ravel fast no skid mark On that tire) either and in D the left front make the same noise now and R it the Passenger rear lot shorter sound bleeding screwed up but I didn't bleed the brakes.

    Aren't the front brakes bled with Techstream, and the rears bled with a Prius rock?
