Hello,
So I figured out that one of my squealers on my front pads is always sliding out of place(gets too close to the rotor). Fine, I'll replace it. I ordered a new set, and put new squealers in, but the the squealer in that location always slides too close the rotors!

So as you guessed it, the result is that the squealer would be making nasty noises everytime I use the brakes(when it's been warmed up). My brake pads are fine and my rotors are fine. The squealer would make noises when i hand spin the wheel.

What can I do about that? Can I just get rid of the damn thing? Will it harm anything if i remove 1 squealer? I assume this might make my brake pad wear a little..off no?

Thanks

I've been with a few squealers myself ;)

on a serious note, the squeelers are the metal tabs on brake pads to warn you when the pads get low. I almost always remove them on my cars. I have the wheels off frequently enough to check my pads.
