Brake Pad Installation Tips

The most common complaint after disc brake service is "NOISE". Brake pads are often singled out as the cause. The friction material does "NOT" generate the "MAJORITY" of brake noise. It is caused by vibration of a brake component that is not properly installed, insulated, secured or lubricated. Improper insulating of the disc pads from the caliper housing or piston is the most common cause of disc brake noise.
