Question about 1998 Mazda 626
1998 Mazda 626 back rear brake on right side only has metal to metal sound when stopping. I have had brake dust removed and still no results.
I have after market brake pads on now and everyone who checks it says they are fine. I bought Mazda brake pads and have not had them installed yet. Will this make a difference? Also is there anything special that should be done when they are installed? The sound is driving me crazy, LOL
I would not doubt that it is from aftermarket parts.
Use silicon grease on the caliper slides and use brake grease on all metal to metal contact parts when installing the new parts.
Also, grind away any rust where the pads sit on the caliper bracket before installing them.
