A "source" told me today the fix is to reverse the calipers so n/s to o/s but upside down. Then they only squeal going in reverse. Is that true? It seems a very MMC solution

And maybe new decals on the calipers? Or maybe you need slightly different pipes

If the calipers are turned upside down, and the bleed nipples are then at the bottom, bleeding becomes harder.

But if the pedal drops on starting the engine, it also suggests the servo is causing that effect. Maybe some air still in the system.

Whatever is going on, it needs looking at.

But I wonder if the kit adapts the calliper so that the bleed nipple is on the top?

I have found it occurs only when the wheel is turned at the maximum at slow speed ( 1gear).
Same max left or max right.it was not there before the correction for the squeal.
Tomorrow the garage will check with a plus four with the modification. If i release the wheel
A little the brakes come back.

It could be I guess a trapped pipe on full lock.

Depends on caliper design but it's sometimes possible to swap the balance pipe between caliper halves and bleed nipples end to end as threads are usually the same.

The top of a bolt fixing the lower suspension arm was hitting the brake calliper when the wheel was at the maximum.

As it is a floating brake the part moved a little and the brake pads where not in contact with the disk.

The same bolt has been reversed to avoid contact and now it is ok.
