There special,specific greases available to put on the pads,but copper slip is a big no-no now I'm afraid.The message is taking a long time to get through though as people have been using copper slip for slip years and it's difficult to persuade people to change their habits.
I do tend to fit pads dry now and so far (although I'd hate to tempt fate!) haven't had any problems.......you wait,we'll get a phone call tomorrow.....'ever since you fitted new pads to my car.....'.
Sooooooo, what are these elusive greases then Lag
Also, are pads covered with something from manufacture now then? Is this apparent with all pads or just decent brands?
