I have a 03 53 cooper S and replaced the rear discs and pads with padgets they squeel after 6-7 miles they also supplied there own anti sqeek lub. Has anyone had the same problem, Cheers

Yeah mine do the same i am running mintex pads and disc , They also do the same in my Cerbera until they get nice and warm Mintex again. I need to silicon the pad to the piston that stops the noise.

It might be the springs on the back of the pad, i fitted these pads on mine a couple of weeks ago and i had to refit them, the first time i put both pads in the caliper carrier like most of the guides i've seen showed and tried to clip the springs around the piston, but this wasn't really good enough as i got major squeal, the 2nd time i refitted them and put the pad with the clips onto the piston this made sure all the springs were fully clipped around the piston, i also replaced the spring clip on the outside of the caliper, and no more squealing
