We epoxied in a washer.  Great service for 10k NM. Don’t see a reason to change.

If the pads are not pressing enough A short-term fix is to place a quarter or similar coin where the ram press is to engage the brakes this will stop your shaft from spinning while Sailing and get rid of the irritating noise

Thank you Bill for your feedback!

I have ordered new brake pads from Maud. I also sent the video and waiting for a feedback.

I wanted to remove the whole brake but I have NO experience with hydraulics. Do I need a specialist for the hydraulic line to remove and remount? My fear is, if I decouple the hydraulic line from the braker I will lose hydraulic oil and air will get into the system. Also the two screws, that hold the brake on the bar look pretty hard to access.

So until now I could not evaluate the reason for the shaking. It is hard to find a marine mechanic in Italy with hydraulic disk brake know how....something very special.
