Front and rear axle brake system squeals when applying light braking force
If the above fault occurs, it may be associated with the brake lining wear indicator. When applying light braking force, the thermal contact on the brake disk may drag, thereby causing an unpleasant squeal. In this case, the thermal contacts must be checked and, if required, replaced with the new versions.
OE part number: front thermal contact 34356778037
