It means you need to check your brakes and possibly replace your pads

Talk about lack of info.

Are you sure it's a hissing sound and not a light grinding noise?

Bleed your lines several times to get all the air out then come back with an update.

Did you use brake caliper grease on the back of the pad when you installed them?

It's a yes or no question. You either did or did not. If you did not, which you probably didn't, that would most likely be the cause of the "hissing".

My wife's TL3.2 is doing the exact same thing. Its not the rear brakes. It sounds more like someone is letting the air out of a tire - and its coming from under the steering column.

Did you bleed the lines after the fact?
Make sure you installed everything properly.

Check the dates, ludedude48 is a necroposter. And he's asking about a problem with a TL in the 92-00 Civic/Del Sol forum.

2+ year old thread...for a question that Google can answer. Don't do that. Rear of the pads, and on the caliper sliders.
