When doing a DIY brake job, I understand that it's necessary lubricate several components of the pad/caliper assembly. From various sources, I have been told that the following are the places where brake grease should be applied:
- The slide pins connecting one side of the caliper to the other (generously).
- The hook-shaped bits on either side of the pad which sit on the caliper.
- The metal back of the pad which contacts the hydraulic piston (lightly).
- The edges of the hydraulic piston.
I've also seen people recommending using anti-sieze lubricant in-between the end of the axle and the rotor, so it's easier to remove the next time the brakes need to be done.
My question is, have I missed any important areas that need lubrication? Or included some that really shouldn't be lubricated? Also, I have heard some people say that anti-sieze should be preferred instead of brake grease - is this true?
