    I have an intermittent noise from the front whilst braking, it only happens occasionally and does not seem to effect the stopping power of the brakes. It sounds like something rubbing or grating, sort of like a pad that has worn flat. I have had a quick visual check with the wheels on and the pads on the outside look to have about 5 mm left but have not taken the wheels off yet to check the rear. I don't know if it is the pads making the noise or something else. No warning lights have come on at all.

    If it is the pads what are the best to fit? where is the best place to buy them?.

    Anything special about changing the discs and pads?

    I used to use EBC Green in my previous Astra but the Merc is a little new to me so wanted to check the collective wisdom of here.

    Thanks in advance.

    I have this. Im fairly sure the pads simply need to be removed, cleaned and re-bedded with copper grease on the underside.
