Anti-seize & pad replacement

Do any of you bother to put anti-seize on the back of the pads during replacement?

And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.

No. You will risk contaminating the lining of the brake pads.

Why would you be putting anti seize on the back of your brake pads?

The BMW front brake bleed and front brake fluid change procedures call for you to apply Never Seez compound (protective grease) to thinly lubricate the rear and trailing end face of the backing plate. The manual warns you to be careful not to get it on the friction pad or the brake disc.

The part number for Never Seez is 83 23 9 407 830, but good luck finding a domestic (US) source.

Notes:

1. The rear brake bleed and brake fluid change procedures don't mention Never Seez.

2. The brake pad change procedures don't mention the Never Seez compound either.

3. I wonder how many dealers actually apply it as specified when they do a front brake fluid change?

Exactly. Thus my question.

The proceedure on the DVD service manual says use it, but most folks do not bother. So I wondered what most folks on the forum are doing.

I've used some blue "Disk Brake Quiet" on the pads when I've done them. Sometimes it's in small packets by the cash register for a buck. Dries to some sort of silicon-like stuff and doesn't wash off like a grease or normal Permatex Anti-Sieze would.
