Whats the best way to remove brake glaze?

I've tried reversing & stomping on the brakes & itdidn't work.Do I need to try faster!

Is there other ways of fixing it without heading to brake shop!

Pull the pads out and deglaze them!

machine the rotors and fit new pads

What are you trying to achieve and why do you think the linings need deglazing!Pads and linings will always glaze as a result of normal brake operation.Brake sqeal is not caused by glazed pads or linings if that is what you trying to remedy.

yes, I'm trying to quiet a slight squeal.

cheers for the replies guys :)

And yes, the pads are fine - mentioned squeak to mechanic thinking it was the wear indicator, but he said it was just glazing.

Think I managed to remove some of it by reversing at speed then stomping on the anchors, just thought there might be more to it than that.

+1. Modern brake pads are designed to leave a deposit on the rotor.
