Well, when I changed the rotors/discs, of course i took the pads out, and put them back in again when putting back together, but I never noticed any shims.

He thinks that is what the issue might be, and that I might be able to fix it with some of these; http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Universal-Self-Adhesive-Anti-squeal-Brake-Shims-/250695039221?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item3a5e96b8f5

So I might give that a go. If that doesn't work, then I guess I need to look at the bearings...

Thanks for the replies!


Did you manually spin and inspect every wheel? I'm not thinking it's the pads, I'm jumping on the bearing bandwagon, it might be silent in the air because there is no load on the bearings.
