    Guys what about greasing the backing plate and metal to metal contact points with copper antiseize ?
    Is that necessary ?

    not absolutely necessary but it helps a LOT in dissipating heat, even force distribution (to some extent) and overall brake stickiness (sorta).

    Actually not too difficult to remove and clean and that helps free up the pads pressure against the disc if the pin is really dirty....

    Yeap, that's right guys.
    We should clean the caliper pins so that it won't seize up.
    Later didn't clean will eat one side of the brake pads

    Hi, Wanna ask any recommendation the grease u all put in the smooth the caliper pin?
    I heard at youtube that need to put silicone paste but I can't find it because petroleum based grease will swell the rubber, is it true? My car is Myvi, going to put some grease on the caliper pin, abit scare after that it jam.
