The cause of the noise is front brake pad resonance from the original brake pads. Land Rover has introduced an improved brake pad set (P/N LRO93886) to alleviate the problem. Land Rover recommends using a long-life lubricating grease for specific areas of the brake pad. Also, Land Rover recommends filing the top area of the new brake pad as indicated in Figures 1 and 2. There is only a 2º ± on the 45% chamfer. The brake lubricant should be applied to the edges of the brake pad as indicated in Figure 3.

Note: The bolts holding the caliper to the upright are torque to yield (TTY) and cannot be reused. The new bolts should be torqued to 133 Nm and turned 60º.
