Default Weird Brake Noise w/ Video

2015 ct200h F-Sport I have a weird noise coming from under hood brake area. The dealer ship says its normal but I am not sure. I have 36k and my warranty is up in June so if there is an issue would like to get it taken care of. I stitched together a few videos from my dash cam the last one is after I stopped and released the brake it made the noise.

Sure thats not a dead body in the trunk? Just kidding. When did this start? What changed prior to you noticing this? I'd have them check it out when you go in for service. They usually do a road test. I would be eager myself to take the wheel off and inspect anything loose around the brake housing area, control arms, shocks.. just to be curious.

I purchased the car a month ago noticed it within the first week. It had 32k at the dealership it says normal on the paperwork when I brought it in for service. They supposedly compared with a like vehicle even though there arenít any on the lot. My service adviser has one he said itís normal I have owned lots of Prius 2nd and 3rd gen driven hard with lots of miles and have never heard this noise before.

I've never heard this noise either, and I've driven the 3rd gen Prius, the Prius C, and the CT.

Call Lexus' hotline and tell them you are having this issue and the dealer is essentially refusing to look at it by claiming "it's normal" They can follow up with the dealer and make sure you are satisfied.

When I brought it in I had a problem with driver door not unlocking all the time, window tilting forward when rolling up, and the brake noise. They fixed the door lock issue said the window and brake where normal. The exact wording was Normal condition when compared to like year and model no correction made or needed no fault in parts or workmanship. The window ok I will give them that but the brakes they are a safety issue. Toyota/Lexus check the floor mats for safety. My reason for posting this is that if it is normal than someone would have encountered it on their car. I guess I will bring it in with just the brakes complaint and go from there and call Lexus if necessary. @Raidin you have the 400k CT I would assume you would have heard that noise if it is normal.

No, not normal at all.

Where are you located? Maybe the Lexus does not see too many CT200h in your area?

Yup. 4.5 years of ownership and 460k miles driven. Never heard that noise. Definitely not normal as others have agreed. You definitely need a second opinion. =P

Ok finally got a chance to bring it in to the dealership. Everything is fixed the video seemed to help them find the problem they replace Part # 47050-76121 cylinder brake assembly and bleed the entire system. They also found the one TPMS sensor that would lose contact and cause the light to blink. Hope this helps anyone else who may have that noise.

I'm pretty sure I have this exact issue. I have a 2011 CT200h. Whenever I let go of the brake slowly or at a stop, it makes that kind of noise. Kind of hard to explain, but it sounds like a farting noise of some sort funny enough.

Sucks because I'm out of warranty... and that's an expensive part to replace. So far, it's only happened in really cold weather conditions and it's not every time.
