It's right in the owner's manual. High pitch squeal/wire brush sound... Condition is normal.

Squealing is not 'normal' for the CCMs. There are several reasons why they may squeal and several service bulletins covering these issues and care/maintenance; in particular creating a proper transfer layer.

You can post photos of the manual all you want, but squealing is not normal for CCM brakes. If they are squealing, then it means that there is an issue that can be resolved if you choose to make the effort.

Thanks for the info guys.

I think I am just going to have to take it in and have it looked at to be sure. I mostly just going through separation anxiety at the possibility of not being able to drive it for a day or two.

While they're looking at it, ask them to chamfer the pads if they aren't already. That might help, too.

I actually just got off the phone with the local Aston dealer and they said if it has been sitting for awhile there will be some build up that will just go away with some aggressive driving. They said they could take a look but recommended I wait a few weeks and see if it goes away naturally so I guess i'll hold off and see what happens. I have put a good 500 miles on it over the last 3-4 days but I guess I have not had to do much aggressive braking besides 10x or so 70-20mph hard stops trying to make sure the pads were broken in and see if that helps.

TELUM01: I was looking at your profile picture and thought that track shot looked familiar and then realized I just watched your youtube videos last night on changing brake pads on the V8 Vantage (with that track photo hanging in the background). Very helpful videos BTW. Do you know if the V12 brakes basically have the same process?

Yep, same process. Two retaining pins and a spring clip.


The track in that pic is Road Atlanta Those pics are now hanging in my office. I've got other ones to put in my garage but need to redo my garage first. Bought a new place in December and haven't finished renovating yet - garage is on the list!

Very nice man.

Thanks for all the videos you have up on Utube. I have not tackled any of those projects yet but the videos you have will be invaluable once I need to start some maintenance.

Do you have or have you seen any videos of someone clearing out a rear lamp that has condensation in it by chance? I just washed my car a few days ago and there is some condensation that is not seeming to go away.

Factory-specified procedure is to drill a drain hole. No joke.


There are updated tail lights that are supposed to fix the problem, though. Same look, style, fitment, etc, but with different sealing. I didn't know about them until I sourced them for someone lol.
