Re: A4 Metallic Brakepads
In my own opinion, no; a rotor turning will not eliminate brake squeal.
One thing to try: go into your local auto parts store (one dealing in
Chevy & Ford stuff, etc. - Pep Boys, Parts America, Trak Auto, etc.);
pick up a spray can of anti-squeal compound. Remove your pads, spray
the backs, let it dry & reinstall the pads. If you only have a slight
squeal now, I bet this will eliminate it entirely for approx. $5.

Subject: A4 Metalic Brakepads..
I just installed a set of FrictionTech brake pads on my A4. I am getting
some squealing during braking and was told that turning the rotors (all 4)
will eliminate this. I am inclined to agree but wanted to float the
to you pro's anyway. Is this going to eliminate the noise?? and does $125
bucks seem reasonable??? it seems mighty steep to me....
Thanks for the help
