    Mornning All

    Last friday i had changed the brake pads on my 330 front and rears. Since changing the rears, the brakes seems to squeak when stopping. first i tho they needed bedding in, but it seems to not be going away.. especially worse on a nice sunny day!

    The pads i used for the rear are mintex ones...

    Any suggestions very much appreciated.

    How much of a lip was there on the discs?

    And were the new pads chamfered?
