Re: Squeeking front wheel

Hi, thanks for your help. Now that you mention that, my pads could possibly be the problem. I had my pads replaced at my local garage not too long ago, but they ones they had ordered ended up not fitting so they used a set they already had there, i have no idea what quality they were or even if they were brand new. I'll give new more expensive pads a try and see if it helps. Im at the stage of going insane also, ive listend to this squeek for the past 7 months, its driving me nuts!

Re: Squeeking front wheel

Although I can't remeber what I paid from Renault, I know it was through the nose

But Jeez, it was certainly worthwhile it in the end.

Hope you find it that way too.

Re: Squeeking front wheel

Yeh hi temp brake grease is still extent for squeeky squeals or teflon shims.
The change of pad material might do the job too of course.
Theres also the "glue the pistons to the back of the pads soln" .
What you do when the pads wear out is another q
