    Default Squealing from front wheels.

    Thanks to the "How To" section I have had a succesful self diagnosis.

    I used the how to change disc and pads thead a few months ago to change the front pads and discs on my 53 plate Vectra C.


    Last week a horrible "squeal" developed whenever I drove, and got worse at high speed.


    I have just had the front wheels off and quickly found the offending cause.


    The caliper steady spring had worked its way loose.


    Without these guides I would probably have been down to the main dealer and parted with my left arm.


    So a question. Would it be advisiable to replace the springs or leave as they are. I have only done about 800miles since the change.

    Thanks for such a great and informative forum.
