    If warp na yun brake disc mo ma feel mo yun sa pedal parang naka ABS ka, pumping motion ika nga. Di kaya tires mo yun nag screech? :twisted: Kidding aside. baka there's something lodge between your disc and your pads.

    ale828,

    baka naman yung disk plate kelangan nang i-reface, o kaya di match yung brake pads mo sa plate kaya umiingit.

    try mo yung mas malambot na brake pads. yung pa-reface pala would cost P800 sa servitek.

    HTH.

    If one or more of your discs are warped, you will feel pulsations thru your brake pedal. If not, they should still be fine. You're probably hearing a high pitched noise(squeeling) that is caused by high frequency vibration of the brake pads. You can switch to softer pads or use a spray-on brake pad compound. Pretty common item over here, it's called CRC Disc Brake Quiet. They should have something like this over there that's similar. You remove the pads and spray this on the outside... not on the surface that contacts the disc...let dry(it will stay tacky) and reinstall. Make sure you don't get any of this on the disc and any surface that will contact the disc. If you do, just clean it with brake cleaner.
