Isn't it better to install steel brake discs for everyday use?

Ok, the keramics work good if they are hot, but u don't really need it...

This is the same for all performance brakes.
get the brakes warm say 2 medium stops from about 60kph , then do 2 hard as you can (ABS pumping away under your foot) to a dead stops from 160kph. Each time driving off immediately so as to allow the brakes to cool gradually. This will stop any squeaking for a while at least

I had the same brake squeal, the brakes I had one were original Mercedes, I applied anti-squeak adhesive and brake silencer, worked for a few days, the I replaced the pads even though the ones I had were 90% life remaining, I replaced them with jurid pads and absolutely no squeak left.... Been 2 months already

Thanks for suggestion - I think I might try your solution next service.
(My brakes still squeak / squeal slowing to a stop at lights, etc.)
Best regards

Cool Brake Squeal Fix

Hey guys,

I've had this issue forever. The shop that worked on my car said they tried EVERYTHING (and this was an AMG-certified mechanic). It's the most annoying thing pulling up in a $100K+ car and the brake squealing like a pig. I took matters into my own hands as I always have to do as the mechanics never try everything and really don't care and like to tell you that this is just the way it is ("normal").

I've attached a quick deck with instructions and pictures on how to fix this. I have a*2012 CLS 63 AMG*with the red caliper brake systems (not the carbon ceramics). These instructions are specific to my car but I'm sure can be utilized for any Benz. I only did the front brakes and that seemed to quiet them down. Pretty much you just have to lubricate all parts that have metal on metal contact. Also, make sure to clean all parts with BrakeKleen or any degreaser/parts cleaner. I used the Permatex Ceramic Extremebrake lubricant. You want to lubricate the*caliper pins, the metal*caliper bracket, the*backs of the brake pads*and the*area of the caliper*where the pads insert (metal to metal contact). Be careful*NOT TO GET*lubricant on the rotors or brake pad material. If you do, use a degreaser to clean it up. Assemble everything back and you should be good to go.

I have completely eliminated that annoying squeal. If you bed your brakes in per the above instructions and also lubricate the parts, you should eliminate the squeal entirely.

I'll be glad to answer any questions here or PM me. I thought I would share with all of you as I had a very hard time finding a*thorough*answer or fix.

Hope this helps at least one frustrated Benz owner.

Thanks for the information.
Interestingly, over the last few years (since last post), I have taken to washing the car much more regularly.
The squeaking has stopped.
Don't know if this is due to brakes "bedding in" over time, water / detergent from regular washing (e.g. removing dust), or a combination. Maybe it is something else.
Regardless, for me the problem has gone away (no issues for last few years).
Good luck !!
