Re: extremly loud screaming brake noise on megane

Hi, think I might have sorted it out.
Took a wheel and caliber off and popped out the pads, they were like new, so got a tube of copper grease and greased the back of pads and clips, cleaned the caliber with a wire brush, and put back together again.

Done same for other side, opened brake fluid cap, pumped brakes a couple of times, put cap back on,

Took for a test drive.

No squeal anymore !!!!

Many thanks for your help dancingdad.

That's 2 jobs I've done myself at a cost of 1.50!

Saving me a good few

Over the moon now !
