Condition

Some customers may comment on a squeal or squeak noise from the front brakes. This condition normally only occurs on initial brake applications after the vehicle has sat for an extended time. The condition occurs typically under light braking, in speeds under 16 km/h (10 mph). After 1-6 brake applies, or after braking at higher speeds, the noise no longer occurs. This condition may occur more often in high humidity conditions.

Correction

Apply a coat of copper paste to completely cover the pad backing plate abutments on each end.

Service Procedure

Important: The use of wheel cleaners or power washers directly pointed at the brake caliper may wash the copper paste off of the brake pads. It may be necessary to apply the copper paste again if the lubricant is washed away. The copper paste should be applied whenever the brake pads are removed or replaced.

Important: (Chevrolet SS Models Only) Do not apply the copper paste to the back of the backing plate.

Apply a coat of copper paste to completely cover the pad backing plate abutments on each end. The paste should not extend onto the friction material. Follow the instructions listed below.
