Why would your brakes make noise when shifting gears?

+1

Also why do you need to bleed them? The only time that is needed is when you take off one of the lines. You don't need to remove the lines from the calipers on this car to change pads and rotors

To get any air out possibly. The brakes are too soft. When I put in drive or reverse , the brakes make an awful noise

Alright, I guess I could see flushing the lines if you wanted to get new fluid in them, (actually a good practice about once every two years).

When you say noise when going into gear, is it a clunk? If so, that to me sounds more like U-joints than brakes.

My and my fathers WJ both groan from the rear brakes when you put them into gear. It is also annoying me if this is what you are taking about
