    Default New brakes squeal

    Recently change all my discs and pads with mtec discs and Mintex pads all went well however my near side front squeals and screeches now. Did eveything the same as the others just don't understand why it's doing it . A bit of rust dropped off near the bolt holes for the calipers so wondering if it's mis aligned because of this. Any views on this?

    Rear dust shield is bent and touching the disc. Bend it back and squeak no more

    Yeh copper greased all that can be greased and lubricated. When had it on axle stands again after I tested it, I turned the wheel backwards and it screeched at about 8 inches on turning the wheel surface area if you know what I mean but didn't do it forwards but now it does it forwards turning and braking.

    As I've mentioned. Just bend the backing plate away from the disc. Will take you 5 seconds.

    Yes I would agree the backing plate sounds like the culprit. Mine did it too. Took me an absolute age to work out what was doing it. Couldn't believe how simple a task it was

    Pushed the backing plate back on the rear brakes but still screeches so it's defo the front near side and there's no backing plates on the front. Looking like I'm gonna have to take disc off and check everything again.

    The front backing plate is only really at the bottom. It's about 70mm wide.

    are u sure u havent missed the backing plate, suppose it would be easy to think its part of the hub or something.

    wen you apply the brakes your hearing metal to metal contact...if it was anything else you would prob smell it or hear a different sound.
