The brakes on my 2001 Rover 75 started squealing when the brake pads were first changed a few years back. All efforts since to quieten them, including changing pads several times, new rotors, anti- squeal, changing spring tensions, cleaning out brake dust etc. have failed. The braking itself is good and also uniform, but the squeal is there at low speeds and seems to be mostly from the front. Any suggestions?
It's most likely caused by the pad material, or the discs have become glazed because of the pad material. Howard Reynolds of Race Brakes recommends TRW, which is a commonly found brand of pad or his own Race Brakes brand pads.
