Moved from other forum

I replaced my worn out discs and pads about 1500 miles ago with Mintex discs and pads.

Recently they are squeaking very badly which is :blush: and driving me :angry: .

  • They have had enough time to bed in so it cant be that
  • I used loads of copper slip/grease, so it cant be that
  • I did remember to put the shims back in

I have also taken the pads off to check for stones etc. there were no stones, but there were more little bits of metal in the pads than I expected, could it be this?

They are not scoring the disc

Dont know what to do now, could it be the discs/pad combo or maybe the shims need replacing (do these wear out)?

Any ideas would be great,

Thanks

Paul

I recently changed my brake pad and dics all round and I too get the same squeaking noise I think it takes time to bed in but that can depend on how many time you drive and brake.

I like you have done over a 1000 miles and get the odd squeaking now n then but it never always come from one side or corner it comes from all over at times or from the front or right etc... :duh: but im waiting for a lil while and see what happens

you have the springs for separateing the pads in ?

Would that cause the noise then? If I remember correctly, the spring on that side was all bent up and I think we left it off.

Some suggestions to be looked at

1) Loose fitting brake pads in the caliper

2) Lack of silicone compound on back of brake pad

3) Missing springs or anti-rattle clips that should be on the caliper or pad

4) Improper tightening sequence of lug nuts or caliper hardware

I had the same problem. Local garage found that brake shoe carrier was seized (£91 from Lexus!) which caused uneven pad wear aswell.

So new pads and new fluid +bleed £217 altogether. Should pick up tomorrow and cant wait to see what the brakes are like when they work properly!
