    Default squeaking from brakes

    i had my brake pads fitted all round on 20 july 2007 and a few days ago i am getting a squeaking from the front passangers side but as soon as you brake it stops
    its not all the time just a few times each way to work and home somtimes its lastes a few seconds some times is around 30 seconds
    i got the garage to see if the discs was ok also when doing the pads and i was told they was fine so i dont think thats the problem unless they shot away in the past 3 weks

    what could it be as its doing my head right in
    i dont like playing with brakes myself but i know how to strip them down and put back togather so is it worth me having a look or bunging it into the garage to take a look?

    would like to have a look myself tomoorrow (with some helpful tips from the lads on here)as all i have all day is a bbq and a few beers

    They probably didn't put enough copper grease on the pads,if your happy to do it yourself just coat the rear of the pads (avoid getting any grease on the friction material) and any contact points(caliper to carrier,pad to caliper,etc).If not take it back to the garage and get them to do it properly.
