Re: Brake Squeel

The first thing I would try would be removing the pads, apply some Mercedes anti-squeal paste and then reinstall the pads. The part number is 001 989 10 51 . It takes approx one packet of paste per wheel. See our DIY brake pad article for more info.

This may not fix your problem but, it costs very little to give it a try. Brake squeal is caused by the vibration of your brake pads within the caliper when you brake. This vibration gives off the high frequency squeal you hear. Brake pad paste helps to dampen the vibration.
