Front Brake Squeal 2013 T31 after New Pads and Ground Rotors.


I am about to admit defeat and take this to a brake expert. I have changed brakes in all my cars and never had this issue before. Recently the car was due for new tyres so I decided to do the brakes as well. I took all 4 rotors off and had them ground by a brake company in Newcastle. It was their first grind and they were in good condition. I then put a set of Calibre brake pads in. I took the time to grease the 2 moving mounts with Bendix brake grease and even applied anti squeal red paste between the brakes and the shims. Within a day I was getting brake squeal. The squeal got to the stage I took the car to the local brake experts and they stated I should have installed Bendix pads. I bought a set off them and installed these. Same thing. Another online forum has blamed the fact that I am not using OEM pads. The OEM pads are $147.00 just for the front. I am worried if I spend this as well the problem could persist. Has anyone been through this or got some suggestions.

Jack the Xtrail up so that the wheel is off the ground and with the transmission in neutral see how easy it is to turn the wheel by hand. If it has too much resistance then the sliding part of the caliper is binding not releasing the brake completely and you have probably glazed the pad, rotor surface or both.

Since the new pads also squeeled, my guess is that the rotor was not resurfaced correctly and you should have the brake company who did the grind look at them again.

Found the problem.
I replaced Calibre brand pads in the front with Bendix but left the rear alone as I believed the noise was coming from the front.
It was the Calibre pads I had left in the rear right.
SHOULD HAVE PURCHASED BENDIX ALL ROUND IN THE FIRST PLACE.
Was told by a brake expert that Calibre pads are rubbish even though they state made by the same company as Bendix. As soon as I changed the rear pads with Bendix all noise ceased.
