I'm not sure the grease was intended for our "fixed" calipers. I've used it on "sliding" calipers that have the piston(s) on one side and the whole caliper slides.

More modern designs have a backing plate with some type of compound that is supposed to dampen the vibration that creates the sound. Seems like a lot of these plates have been lost on Opels. The compound that is used on the back of pads can be purchased at most any auto parts store, just describe your problem, and it isn't grease.

HTH,
