Front Brakes Squeaking Noise

Hi,

I changed the Pads with OEM ones but that did not solve the problem.
Then Changed the Disks with aftermarket ones, and still that noisy sound comes out when the brakes heat up.

Could they be fixed the wrong way or something? because a non-experiened mechanic did them

Did you apply any anti-squeal compound when you installed the brakes?

I don't understand what you're saying here, the squealing noise is most likely the pads, were the oem ones you used brand new?, if they were, they shouldn't be making any noise, if you put on old ones, then there's your problem, make sure to properly bed in the pads as well

I put on some pbr pads, I didn't use any anti-squeal compound and I haven't heard a peep out of them for 2 years *knock on wood*

I used brand new ones. the shop told me there are oem and I found the bmw group silver sticker on them. But the disks are not OEM. Could that be the problem?

Shahab, what's pbr pads?

Also How can I make sure the pads are bed in correctly?

if the discs are new they shouldn't make any noise, pbr is just a brand of brake pads, i'm not sure what the problem is

here's a write up on bedding in your brake pads

Instructions for bedding in your brakes

you basically just want the pad material to be evenly distributed on the brake rotor to provide even, more consistent braking
