Re: Squeaking brakes
I had that problem. I put some Permatex Disc Brake Quiet on the back of the pads and it made a huge difference. It rarely squeals now.
Pads that are worn will squeal constantly, and may even squeal less when the brakes are applied. Pads that squeal on application of the brakes do so due to poor design. Mazda should have used shims or something on those pads.
