Did you put some CRC disc brake quit or anti-seize on the back of the pad? Your getting a squeal from the vibration of the pads in the caliper.

Thank you Tom, do you have any idea how to solve the problem and stop them squealing when they heat up. And are the brakes safe or too risky for a long distance trip. Your help would be appreciated. I will have to contact the garage that replaced the discs and pads to see what they did when fitting them Thanks

There could be something else going on as well. Maybe you might want to try a different brake pad or try another garage to get a second opinion and a solution.
