Squeaky brakes

Post by Girv101 » Mon Nov 25, 2013 10:49 pm

Anyone found a solution to squeaky brakes?
Car's only done 18k so shouldn't be pads.
Any help would be appreciated :beerchug:

Does it sound like this?

This was the sound of mine after they replaced the discs and pads due to the previous annoying noises.

I ended up getting rid of the car beause it annoyed me so much.

Much better. Feels more solid, more planted, quicker, LOUDER, brakes better, looks better. The downside is the attention it gets, I've had a few people film me recently in it which I'm not a fan of. Oh yes, fuel economy is terrible, I seem to spend a lot of time at the petrol station.
