    please could someone with experience in ...

    Xt 2008 disc brakes help me to get rid of a horrible sound coming from the lever when the brake is actionated. It happens only with the rear one, when it's activated and approaches to the end of it's travel and when the lever is release and returns to the very top, relaxed position.
    It seems like some sand or grit made it's way into the moving parts of the lever. How can I dissamble it to put some lub (grease or thick oil) and get rid of it?

    Thanks a lot!

    Bye

    The cam may have dirt or grit in it. The lever will need to be disassembled to clean and lube. It is pretty easy to figure out. Shimano probably has a pdf for it too. If you are not comfortable doing it yourself, take it to a bike shop or send it to Shimano.

    Please do not bump your own threads. It is against posting guidelines.

    sorry will, I didn`t knew that rule :$

    I`m confindent in doing it by myself, but I see that I have to remove the free stroke screw...does removing this screw release the mineral oil in the lever? Or something like that?

    thanks!
