Posted 4 years ago loddrikMemberAs above, I guess I must have got a little oil on the pads/discs. Would blasting them with a steamer help? Posted 4 years ago johnellisonMemberIf you’ve got fluid on the pads, they’re fubarred. Replace. Clean discs with IPA or propietory brake disc cleaner beforehand. Posted 4 years ago thegloverMemberDepends on how much… you might be able to get away with sanding the pads down and cleaning the rotors with IPA Posted 4 years ago smiffyMemberSchoolboy error! Posted 4 years ago wilko1999MemberI’ve never managed to rescue any contaminated pads. I’ve tried all the usual suggestions. It’s happened an embarrassing 5 times and each time the only way to cure it properly has been new pads. The continuing expense of being clumsy 🙁 Posted 4 years ago johnellisonMemberActually, having said that – no-one’s actually asked if your brakes work properly, despite the howling?Mine squeal like a pig just after I wash the bike and degrease everything, but they work just peachy. Posted 4 years ago bobmckMemberDid you take the calliper off (i.e. calliper and disc now misaligned)? Could cause one pad to touch the rotor before the other… Posted 4 years ago brakesMemberaaaawwwwwwoooooooooooooooooooo! Posted 4 years ago corsairMemberaaaawwwwwwoooooooooooooooooooo! I see what you did there, brakes. 😆 Posted 4 years ago tmb467SubscriberWash pads in soapy water then put em on a hot hobBurn off the oilQuick sand and put em back on – done this once before and it worked fine.
