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.
