My front brakes are squealing quite badly in light brakings. Have to take the pads off for cleaning and lubrication.

Does some have the torque specs for the slide pin bolts?

Oh, I think we can find those for you. Sit tight.

You’ll find the torques for the guide pins on the pdf entitled “brake disc front” but I’ve added some relevant pdf’s too. And just in case you want to do your rears (no, not your ears!), this seems a good place to put them too.

I would urge you not to use copper grease as a noise suppressor as it is frankly useless. A purpose made ceramic or silicone grease is best but even high melting point bearing grease is infinitely better than copper grease. The latter is clay based and very quickly dries leaving nothing but a mess.

I don’t know if you can find something like this in the US;

Thanks again for helping. I have some white brake lube, don't remember what it actually is. Might be some sort of brake cylinder grease, have to check.

Sounds a bit like rubber grease from your description.
