Got mine from autobacs a couple of years back. Why do you need brake cleaner? I used it when I DIY installed a set of new disc and pads. The disc was coated with a layer of oil to prevent rust.

For squeals, you need brake grease on the back of the pads and on the spring clips. Also bevel the edge of the pads might help.

nope, use copper grease to "stick" the back of the brackpad and the thin metal plate that cause the squeaking sound.

Autosaver or Riverview Auto should be able to do this for a charge. else you may check with MXTradings, which has two freelance mechanics working on Sunday only.

most workshop can do it. just ask them to service your brake. problem is, not many workshop keep copper grease. its not cheap, i buy a small tube for usd9+ frm amazon. most workshop only apply general purpose lithium grease which will dry up very fast due go the heat generated frm braking.

Hmmm, I get it from my workshop. It's good, can clean dirt, oil stains, etc.

 

Not really sure where else to get it.

 

Maybe try the marketplace?

Copper grease is cheap la. I still have a small pint size tub of it. I removed and fixed my rotors and pads using the grease to try to solve a clicking noise on my Corolla. In the end it was the rotor. I replaced it and the noise went away.
