Rich, ECS did nothing wrong. It's up to *you* or your mechanic to keep the
pads from squealing.

Have you bedded the pads properly?

For one procedure, check out:


Pagid and Mintex both have similar procedures listed on their websites.

No guarantee that this will stop your squealing, btw.

'95.5 S6 avant (996 C2 calipers with squealing Hawk HPS pads)
'96 A6 quattro avant (with quiet Mintex Red pads)
