Re: Brakes keep squeaking but don't need replacing!
Brakes (Disc's) often squeal if the anti squeal shims, or the back of the pads are dry, I use copper-slip grease, remove the pads & smear a light coating on the REAR of the pads, this has the effect of stopping the vibration that creates the noise.
Check first you don't have a stone or something wedged in the calipers, & that the pads are serviceable.
