I can't stand when they do this. When I had my last lotus I always ended up with pads that were noisy. I need new pads!!
Actually now that I think about it, yes I did that a while back! LOLOne thing I did to reduce or eliminate the squeal is clean out the brake dust deposits from the cross-drilled holes. Take a wooden chopstick or similar, and start "poking". Make sure it goes through the depth of the disc
I would have preferred slotted discs for this reason.
An attachment for your air compressor - needle valve for basketballs, etc. might be better than cans?Actually now that I think about it, yes I did that a while back! LOL
I guess that's what did it.. You know what works really well? air duster cans with the red straw on them. you get really close to the drill holes and it blasts right through and push the straw through the other side. Blast out all the dust in the vents too as well as the brake pads. So much dust eliminated, vastly improved cooling.
Unless you have multiple cans, you'll have to do them one wheel at a time in each session, as the cans lose pressure from the temperature drop.
This sounds like fun! Can I do it between stop lights????? Pweassse!!1.Don't breath the dust!!!
2. Try doing a few aggressive 100-10 stops. Gets rid of the glaze caused by babying brakes.
Frankly when i pull up to a light and brakes squeal, I'm happy cuz that means they're serious brakes.
