Had the car serviced a few months ago. 

 

Now the brakes squeak with the smallest amount of pressure. Ive had the pads checked and they are still at a pretty good level.

 

Had my mechanic look over the system and he said nothing is obviously wrong with the car. 

 

Can anyone suggest anything note worthy:

 

Better brand of Pads 

 

Share their own experience and resolution with me 

 

 

Thanks in advance  :)

A bit of grease on the back of them and chamfer the leading edge helps reduce noise

+1 works everytime

 

new pads wise either EBC green or mintex are the best in running mintex and stopping power is noticable plus got the 260mm upgrade thinking of the 300mm next or rear disc
