Re: Any quick cure for sqeaky brakes?

I have seen brake caliper piston rubber seals torn to shreds after the dreaded copper grease has rotted them and few months later the piston seizes due to water ingress.

I look at it this way when a car is new it doesn't come with copper grease applied and brake manufacturers don't recommend it either.
