Re: Brakes still squeaking

It's also possible to have a small amount of squeal during the bedding in period.

Certainly though, a stuck caliper or loose shim (behind the pad) is more likely to cause noise. Any copper grease between the shim (if there is one) and the back of the pad will help to stop this sort of noise. Be very careful not to get any on the friction material or the disc though.
