What if I have Noise Issues After Installation?
Solution Check List
Be sure that all caliper components are clean prior to disc pad
installation. Wire brush if necessary.
Insure that rotor surfaces are smooth and that there is no lip at
the outer rotor surface from previous pads. Machine or replace
rotors as appropriate as these conditions will cause noise issues.
Clean rotor surfaces (incl. new rotors) with a “Scotch
Brite” pad and a brake cleaner such as “Brake-Kleen” available at
auto parts stores. Wipe dry with a clean cloth. Do not touch the
rotor surface with fingers once clean.
Apply a liberal coating of “Noise Free” or “CRC Disc
Brake Quite” to the steel side of the disc brake pad backing plates
and to the caliper piston face.
Allow the coating to cure to a tacky condition for minimum of 1 hour
prior to assembly. A longer cure (up to 12 hours) is best for the
disc brake pad steel surfaces.
Apply a coating of Sta-Lube Synthetic Brake Caliper Grease to the
disc brake pad ears that contact and slide in and out within the
caliper. Apply also to the other caliper locations as noted on the
Sta-Lube directions. Do not apply to the surfaces where “Noise Free”
has been applied.
Install Cool Carbon Performance Brake Pads and re-assemble.
Perform bedding procedure as per the included instructions and as
specified by Cool Carbon Performance. Very Important!
Note: Pads will generally dust more during the first
several hundred miles until fully bedded and stabilized. If any
noise is noted, it is likely caused by a build up of dust or the
release of tiny friction particles. This is generally resolved by
flushing the caliper thru the wheel with a garden hose until the
water runs clean. It may be necessary to repeat the flush at a later
