I love South Main Auto, but I’m not sure about using fluid film for the hub. I like fluid film but not for something like that, instead I’d use an anti seeze or something that won’t wash away and can handle heat.YouTuber - South Main Auto, shop is in NY state, so rust is "normal" - likes using FLUID FILM for that usage. I've only used it for the first time very recently so it will be at least a year before I see how it works.
And it’s funny but South Main doesn’t use any sort of grease on the ears of brake pads, he puts it under the clips, instead of where the clips contact the pads. And he’s not the only one, I’m seeing more and more shops doing this now. The theory is that under the clips, rust forms, and that rust puts pressure upwards and causes the pads stick (not allowing them to move/return). Makes sense I guess. And he doesn’t lubricate where the pads contact the clips because they collect dirt and as long as those pads can move, rust shouldn’t form much, and be scraped off. I tried it four months ago, so far so good.
