when i push the brake pedal i can hear a fastidious noise from it like a squeaking squirrel, i tried putting my head under the wheel column and spraying with sylicon oil everything but nothing changes,
i can't exactly understand where the noise comes from...

Maybe you have one of these Sneezy Mouses that is allergic to the silicon spray.

i don't know if the noise comes from the pedal's leverage or from the pump under the hood...

Hi fernandel,
Trying to trace a noise is difficult in reality, but pretty much impossible over the Internet. I can only suggest 2 things - 1) you need a (very close ;)) friend to crawl into the footwell while you operate the brake pedal.

2) One very old trick is to use a long insulated screwdriver or similar and put it against your ear. If you touch the other end to various components like the master cylinder (keep clear of electrics!) while the brake pedal is being operated, it acts like a doctors stethoscope and you may be able to isolate the exact source of the noise.

Sorry I can't be more helpful, but it's worth a try.

Regards
Steve
