Minor front break squeal...

Post by tj5iveo »



Hello all,
Brand new '16 GL1800 audio.comfort, 8000 miles. Just noticed a minor squeal fron the front brake when stopping, only at the end of the stop. ANything I can use to clean the rotors since I'm thinking its not the pads with the low mileage. Googled it and found a buzzilion things. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Thank, ride AND be safe...

TJ

I used this one time, and it worked.

Try cleaning the rotors with BrakeClean. It is a product designed to clean any road grime that get on rotors.
