Re: how to change brake pads on Clio 1.2 and which pads??

Also, where did you put the copper grease? If you have only applied it to the back of the pads, I would take them out again and apply some to the sides of the metal plate that the friction material is stuck to top and bottom where they sit against the caliper. I tend to find that this is where most squealling comes from.
Currently in bigiainw's garage:
2016 Skoda Octavia Scout 2.0 CR 150 in Cappuccino Beige/ 2006 Renault Clio III 1.2 16v 3dr Extreme in Post Box Red/ 2013 Renault Trafic LL29 2.0 dCi (euro 5) Sport Passenger in Luxurious Gun Metal Grey with Cruise control, now with parking sensors!!!
