I hear you about them thar squeaking brakes!

I had a 300SD which did the same thing. Drove me crazy! a couple of thoughts:

Have the flexible brake lines between the metal lines and calipers been replaced recently? I noticed the mileage. I was told to do this on the SD and it eliminated the noise. I guess the idea was that the lines were flexing and not allowing full pressure. I was at first skeptical but afterwards very pleased.

Also I used on a different car a product called CRC - Disc Brake Quiet found at NAPA stores. The product is orange and is a silicone based paste. It attaches the pad to the brake puck. The idea being to keep the pad from wiggling and vibrating.

Hope this ideas help.
