Thanks for the tip, I might give that a try if it doesn't get any better. I will also keep you in mind when I need pads.

Thanks

If your pads are worn, then we can get you a set of Hawk pads that should do you well
I tried this little tip and it worked! No more irritating sqeaking, thanks for the info.

This is a very helpful forum I must say.

I'm too scared to check on the rotors and new pads. If I spend any more money on my car I'll have to hire a bodygaurd to keep my wife from killing me.
