Re: Squealing noise from offside front wheel area

Don't put the pads back in without putting some brake pad lube on the metal to metal contact surfaces including the rim of the piston.

I usually use a thin smear of copper grease but others swear by proper brake pad grease due to potential piston rubber seal degradation.

Obviously keep the disc and friction material of the pad, free from any grease.
Currently in lancs dave's garage:
Scenic 1.4ish 2002. Clio 1.2 2002. Thunderbird 885 1995, Suzuki Gsx600f 1989. Fazer 600 2002. Specialist cement mixer for proffessionals only, not yer average forum numpty. Your car is probably worth more than all that lot put together.
