Squeaky Brakes on 146ti
About 10,000 miles ago I had new discs and pads on the front end. All works absolutely fine but after the system has got some heat into it (ie after a good thwap down the lanes) either of the sides can develop an irritating brake squeal.
This is not when applying the brakes - that results in the squeal instantly stopping - but just when cruising along. In the usual Italian fashion it is not consistent(!) but when it does occur it completely does your head in.
It initially was on the left hand side only, so I took the caliper off and regreased everything up but it made no difference!
On other cars I have owned there has always been an anti-squeal shim behind the pads - but this time it was pad straight onto piston. Anyone know if this is normal?
Any thoughts would be gatefully received.
