Problem: High pitch squeal from front passenger side when pulling away.

Hello,

I have a Mini Cooper a R53 and have recently replaced the discs with performance discs. Since this has been done whenever I pull away, I hear a high pitch squeal coming from the car. I have taken the discs off and checked them numerous times however cannot see any faults. Ideas?

Squeal all the time its moving? or just momentarily as you start off?
Does it do it wheels ahead or turned?
Youve greased the rear of the pads, anti squeal and retaining clips all in correctly?
Surface corrosion of the caliper slot where the disc runs not rubbing on the new disc which might be slightly thicker as its not worn down?
You reset the caliper pistons so they returned right back with your new pads, ie one piston isnt sticking slightly or not freeing off until the wheel turns?
You could jack it up and ask someone to press the brake pedal whilst you check the disc immediately releases by turning the wheel by hand as soon as the pedal is released to prove a piston isnt sluggish?
