Tinkling Whistling on Braking

Hey Team,

Sometimes when I apply the brakes I can hear this very light and pretty quiet whistling / tinkling noise coming from one of the brakes, now I say 'One of' because it doesnt sound all round, it seems to come from me rear right.

It isn't anything major as I am still stopping and as I said it doesn't do it all the time, but I'm pretty sure I had the same thing with my 156 V6. Is this a pretty common problem? And once again, I say problem in the loosest sense possible as it's no biggy.

If it is a common issue, what can I do to stop it if it does get any worse? As it is though it's hardly audible unless I turn the radio off anyway so as long as it isn't a major problem I won't bother getting it seen to.

What do you lot think?

try using copper grease on the contact points, its not uncommon for people to fit pads/discs without bothering with copper grease, leading to brake squeal.
