    Hey guys...

    Just fitted my wheels on sunday and the rear is making a squeek everythime the wheels goes round.. Its a faint squeek but i think its getting worse. I can only hear it when the window is open and it sounds blooming annoying!

    I thought perhaps it was the handbrake shoes.. but when i put the handbrake on whilst moving and it doesnt make any difference.

    If im going along at say 30-40 you can here the squeek and then when i apply the brake lightly it stops....

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Ben

    On my e36 I had the same. Turned out to be the metal guards thingy behind the disc. It was slightly bent and rubbing on the disc. Not sure if an e46 is the same though..

    Was random. Sometimes it done it, others it didn't!

    Chock the front wheels so it doesn't roll away, jack it up and release the handbrake. Spin the back wheel and you should hear if it's rubbing.

    Do you use a pressure wash and wheel cleaner to clean your wheels brake discs etc.

    If so you may need a bit of copper ease on the back of your pads?

    Not been washed in about 2 weeks and the problem just started as of sunday... Any ideas plum? I was thinking the calipers or something because of the fact it stops when i apply light brake pressure.. but doesnt the rear brakes only kick in through harder braking?

    If there is no grease on the back of the pad there will be friction and they will squeek.

    The cleaners can remove that grease over time. The squeek would disappear when the brake is touched.

    Is it not a total mision getting the brakes off?
