Re: Brake pad question (Sebboh)

My 01 Golf has squeally front brake pads. The dealer has re-seated them twice, now, but says that brakes are squeally because asbestos can no longer be used in their manufacture. I have seen so many beetles with really really dirty rear wheels from excessive brake dust because their car has soft factory installed pads. My car has the harder front pads which I think were introduced mid year because the soft pads had excessive wear. My guess is your car has these hard pads too. My fronts also make a rubbing noise when wet and even dry! I'm sure they're fine.
