As with most varying advice, read the info available and go with what you feel comfortable with.mmm..ok. after researching this opinions seems to differ, some people say use brake fluid and never use grease, others say the opposite!
What do you mean by slide pins?I've been reading up on what grease for brake slides pins, there's so many conflicting opinions. Apparently BMW Cars say no grease required, then there's copper, red, normal, ceramic, silicone etc. I've received silicone from Brakes Int with seal kits but you only get small sachets.
You only need a small amount, just enough for a light smear on the rubber components and maybe the grooves they go in. There's more than enough in the sachets; if you run out, you're using too much! It's not like vaseline, you know......I've received silicone from Brakes Int with seal kits but you only get small sachets.
