squeaky brakes

Coupla months ago i put new pads on my brakes. i bought the tube of goo to put on the pads to keep them from squealing but took it back. hmmmm, now i get a major squeal---especially when it's dry out.

how do i put the goo on there with the pads on? or do i have to remove them again?

Unfortunately. you have to pull the pads - that anti-squeal compound goes on the back plates of the pads.

The goo normally helps keep the pads from rattling. If you do a search on the site you will find that many people have gone to a ceramic mix pad or similar. They cost a little more but they don't squeek.
