Subject: Re: 1999 9-5 front brake noise

Possibly stating the obvious, but has your mechanic greased the pads/slides when he put them together? If he has, then it is possible that someone in the past has filed the slides, to clean them, that is, and they are now too wide so the pads have movement in the slides?
