    Squeaky front brakes

    Had some new disks and pads fitted to the front of my Mk4 5 door hatch and ever since they have been squeaking loads.
    The brakes are much better than the other ones its just the noise that annoys me because it sounds like a bus!

    How can i fix it?
    Thanks

    They're just bedding in, they'll stop eventually. Brakes can take up to 1000 miles to fully bed in.

    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring

    As above, give them a while to bed in. Failing that, copper grease on the back of the pads should sort it.
