    Quick one guys. Had my front pads and discs changed with OEM replacements and they are squealing a bit. Only for the last part of a stop. So braking from 60 they wont make a sound until the last 5mph and then they squeal to a stop. Is this normal until they are bedded in or has the dealer not installed these right?

     

    cheers!

    They need gentle braking in then they’ll be ok?

    Great! Thought the dealer maybe left the anti-squeal pad backs off or didn’t grease. If they just need ran in thats grand!

    give them 50 miles and if they are still doing it try a few hard and fast stops from 70, I got mine smoking once at a 1000 miles and they have not made a sound since.



    No nothing.

    No Mods. No rockers. Just a chunky knob.

    No tackiness.

    Std as Ford intended, but with a space saver wheel and jack and nuts and wheel brace. oh.. and flaps, a man has got to have flaps.

    Innit?

    Does anyone know if the antisqueal pads on the RS pads are seperate or bonded on from factory – just trying to work out if they have left them off.

    I thought the backs of the pads had an integral anti squeal surface? Maybe take em out and slightly chamfer the leading edge and maybe the inner and outer edge a smidgen.
