Front brake

So the front brake squeeks when breaking. I dont know much about disk brakes. Is there a lubricant or do i need to replace something?

A thin layer of caliper grease on the backside of the pads should work. Why you have the pads off,replace them if they are more than 70% wore. Each caliber should be mounted by two bolts. Good luck.
