Re: Renault Modus

It is NOT recommended to use copper grease on the back of brake pads as it rots the caliper piston boots - water then gets into the piston bore causing it to seize.

Brake manufacturers recommend using a special grease. Castrol Red Rubber Grease being one example.

Are the discs worn either having a lip on the outer edge or a radious at the inner edge where it meets the centre hub?
