Hi all. I've got a squeal from the front right which disappears when I brake but comes back almost straight away. Can this be a sign of worn pads or would it be something else?
Should only make noise if under braking and is usually an aweful scrapping sound if the wear indicators. QUOTE]
That's what I thought with the indicators and mine is doing the opposite. Anyway droped the wife into the city and the noise is back. Wasnt really that much brake dust in there when I washed it but it did stop while it was wet. I've got some new mag's and tyre's on order so I'll get em' to look it over while they're at it.
LOLThose saying to bend the squealing indicator thing back are silly. There is a reason that they are set at that thickness... Heat dissipation etc. Have you ever had a brake pad crumble? No? Scary stuff!
Don't bend the pin noise thing back... get a new set of pads for god's sake. They aren't that expensive! Or that hard to change!
