So as soon as you let go of the brake pedal, your brakes would chrirp?

Sounds like they are rubbing. A brake job would fix the problem. I wouldn't recommend doing this yourself, because you could make it worse than it already is, and you need quite a few tools for the job.

My breaks were squeeking too. Its really annoying! I checked out my brake pads and sure enough they needed to be replaced. Done and done! I suggest you take it back to where you had your work done and they should fix it for you.

Okay..I really thought you meant a bird in the brakes...I started to try to think of how that could happen...and then I was like hmm...maybe there are pics. wtf rofl rofl

Anyway, I agree, you should take it back and tell them the brakes are squeaking, since they are the last ones to touch it. Good Luck. thumbsup
