Intermittent squeaking brakes
My '04 Alfa Gt 3.2 has developed intermittent squeaky brakes!? Squeak disappears if you press the brake pedal, however does not go if you lift the handbrake alone gently - would suggest its the 'fronts'...
Now the curious bit. When cold, no squeal, when hot, (after say 20+ miles), the squeal is unbelievably loud, then seems to disappear again 10-15 mins later, (temperature related?).
Before I strip the front brakes has anyone experience of this before? Perhaps point me in the right direction?
P.s. Brakes actually stop really well all the time with good disks and pads showing very little wear, hence my question before I 'bin' what could be OK parts!?
