Ending Brake Squeak

My brakes squeaked since the day I picked up my Viking. Riding the brakes while driving down hill just shortens the life of your pads and rotors and doesnt fix the problem.

I took the time yesterday to do the front brakes and it worked so well I did the rear brakes this morning. In total it took about 2 hours and it was time well spent. None of them squeak at all. What a relief!

Pic 1: All you really need is disc brake grease, a 12mm socket, metric hex keys, a paper towel and a flat blade screwdriver (for applying grease).


Pic 2: Find the two pad retaining pins and break them loose with your hex key. Don't remove them yet.


Pic 3: Remove the two 12 mm caliper bolts.


Pic 4: Unscrew the two pad retaining pins with your hex key.


Pic 5: Use the hex key to push the pins out.


Pic 6: Remove the pads and clean the parts.


Pic 7: Grease the spring and all pad contact points. Insert the pad retaining pins part way and grease them too.


Pic 8: Grease the back of the inner pad as shown and install it by pushing down against the spring while you slide the pins through the holes.


Pic 9: Repeat with outer pad. Screw the pad retaining pins all the way in.


Pic 10: Grease the slide pins and reassemble.

I am lucky. My brakes never had this problem. Your post is very well presented with clear photos of your fix. Nice Job!

Its hard to explain how much the squeaking distracted from my enjoying the Viking. It was such a drag that something brand new that cost over $10K, would squeak like that. Now that it is quiet I enjoy it 10X as much.

Good write-up BM, mods might want to pin and lock this thread? My brakes have never squeaked either funnily enough.

It's been 3 months and a tough winter. The brakes still don't squeak.

This has been on my list as it is driving me crazy!! I agree a brand new machine that cost this much should not have little problems!
