Squeaking brakes –

a useful tip!

Now and then workshops receive customer complaints regarding squeaking brakes.

NK suggests all workshops to pay attention to the mounting guideline. Maybe there is a simple way to solve the squeaking problem?

For brake pads with reversed shape of the shims there is a risk of fitting them in the wrong side of the caliper. This will result in a squeaking sound from the brakes.

In these cases NK brake pads have an arrow marked on the back plate.

Always mount with the arrow pointing in driving direction!
