RE: brake pads

I'm guessing you have received no replies because your question is so vague.You need to explain precise details of your problem in order to get helpful suggestions.[:)]

RE: brake pads

I know that on many "high-end" cars this is a major problem. It happens because of the ceramic brakes, in most cases. I assume your C does not have ceramics, so I would recomend you have the dealer look at it. If it is that loud, it must be serious--and I would not let it go on much longer.
