Re: Squeeky front brakes

RIGHT!!! I'm starting to lose the will to live now, i've put on new discs and new pads and yet the metalic whining, sqeeling, rubbing noise is still there lol

Re: Squeeky front brakes

Hi thanks for your reply chap, I have removed the pads from the calipers just to check but I haven't applied any copper grease, I will do this today and see if it helps.
