Shouldn't get any dirt on your guide pins if you remember to put the rubber covers back on,
I'd take what BMW say with a pinch of salt!
They tell new owners the Transmission oil is "LIFELONG" no such thing,just whip out your filler/inspection or drain plugs and hey presto you can be sure the magnets are covered with metal filings.
I'd just put a smear of Copper or white silicone grease and refit the rubber boots.
This is the stuff I was after! Didn't want to use copper grease as I believe it can cause the rubber boots to swell.
If you clean the pins, don't you need to re-grease them? ::wink:: - or are you saying no grease at all? :eeksurprise: - the front pad pins definately had the grey grease in the boots and the car had a FSH by BMW before I got it...
Think I'll check out the silicone greases unless one of the Cotswold guys comes back with a part number for the proper stuff...
UPDATE: Thinking I may go with this - MINTEX ANTI-BRAKE SQUEAL GREASE CERATEC
