Re: Squealing brakes - done before I know, but....

Could be the pads or discs have become glazed. Remove the pads and give the pads and their housing a good clean. Check the wear thickness of the discs - how deep is the lip at the inner and outer edges?

Brake manufacturers do NOT recommend using copper grease as it destroys the brake caliper rubber seals
