Shimano M416 Squeaking

Hi, i accidentally lubricated disc brakes because i wanted to remove rust from bolts on brake caliper and brakes started to squeak.

Then i tried to clean rotor and pads with alcohol, i cleaned it and emeried pads with emery sponge. Brakes still were squeaking

Today i bought Motul Brake Cleaner and used it on everything: rotor, pads, caliper. At the beggining i heard no squeaking, but after minute of riding it started again even worse.

What i should do now? I am tired and nervous, spend money and nothing helps.

Sounds like you have contaminated your pads. The rotors should be ok if you have used the cleaner on them, for the pads, it's normally cheaper to replace rather than attempt to revive them.

Yeah, throw away the pads and clean the rotor very thoroughly before letting it touch the new pads.

Too expensive. I found cheaper long life, KW brand from Australia but i can wait http://www.ebay.com/itm/SINTERED-DIS...item4aae75b661 . I converted the price to litai and from your recommended shop it costs 38Lt , from ebay 31Lt. How long they are shipping?
