Brakes

Recommended Posts

Need a bit of advice. Changed my brakes today, pads and discs. Had to be changed because discs had a lip and causing alot of squeaking and pads were worn. After changing evreything i still have a bit of squeaking at low speeds on the passenger side.

Anyone have any ideas why its still squeaking. Its not as bad as before.

The phenomenon can be explained in this way: due to the friction between disc and pads, the quartz included in pads' material is transforming into the small glass beads, and this is the reason that squeaking is heard (sound produced by friction between glass and steel), but if you press the brake strongly those glass beads smash and the brakes are silent for a while. Therefore the noise is owed by the material's composition fault nor the car's design fault !
