Brake anti squeal shims

Hi Dave,

the squealing is caused by the pad vibrating just before the pad is squeezed on the disc.

Not all pads do it and a good pad could squeal on another disc.

The anti squeal metal shims work by cocking the pad over a very small amount. This stops the face of the pad vibrating on the disc by presenting an edge that gives it a small contact area.

The sticky backing simply holds the pad and thus stops the vibration.


Give it a go without the backing. If it squeals then fit the backing.
