    Default Squeeky Brakes

    Alright,
    I have noticed lately i've got squeeky breaks on the front.
    Is there a solution to this, Its not a major squeek but its just annoying now!

    Cheers for the advice.

    All pads will squeal when they get dry , just take them out and apply some copper ease to the back faces ,

    I have the same problem, VX pads and discs changed about 3 weeks ago, only front drivers side does it, have both been plastered in copper slip but still does it.
