Excellent post and information. I will be doing the front pads on our 95 C220 in the next week or two.
Any insight on who's break pads you used. I've done breaks several times on different cars and about 1 or every 3 sets ends up with a terrible squeek. Somtimes the squeek goes away after a few weeks, but other times it seems to be there for the life of the pads.
Any tricks of the trade to prevent or minimize the squeeking would be appreciated.
