I have had now for a while a squeaking problem which sounds like its coming from my wheels. I took it to a Rhinos Tyre dealers who tried to resolve the problem by using some emery cloth on the brake disks as they thought it was catching but this didn't work. I had the brake pads changed only last November and are still in very good condition. The squeeking happens usually when I'm driving around 5-20 mph and is getting very irritating, any help would be appreciated on this.

Did whoever fitted your brake pads apply an appropriate amount of copper grease? In my experience, low speed brake squealing if often down to this...

I am not sure I was away with work so my dad took it in, but the garage he took it to are usually quite good so they should have done

I would agree that lack of copper grease on the back pads where they are in contact with the pistons is the most likely cause of the low speed noises
