Hi, I have a 54 plate Mondeo tdci.

I changed the pads a few weeks ago, used decent pads and plenty of copper grease to lube. Brakes squeal very loudly now, noise generally stops when applying the brake, Have checked pads again today no issues - have even wear, discs are fine, plenty of copper grease and no brake dirt as I cleaned them up before.

Please can someone help as the noise is both driving my crazy and is embarrassing? Read some topics around handbrake cables or rear calipers being faulty causing to much pressure in the system? Anyone got any ideas?

Did the pads have anti squeal shims with them?
Sometimes also putting a slight chamfer on the leading edge of the pads can reduce squealing.
