    Default brake disk problem

    my mum said my car was making a grinding noise

    i went down and on one back disk theres a small ring ground out the disk

    now its a vec b 2.6 so if i change back disks and pads will this cure the problem or do u think theres something other than brake pad wear causing the problem?

    I'd check the pads for thickness to make sure they are not worn out. When was it making a noise? All the time or just when braking?
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    when braking


    and it was really really bad just as u were coming to a halt

    i cant understand why its only a 2 cm ring around one disk and not the other

    the disks arent lipped at the edges

    Check the pads. They could need replacing, when were they last done? Or it could be something stuck in it.

    wouldnt the back pads wear evenly tho?

    so the whole disk would be scored rather than just a wee ring around the middle of it

    i think there might be something stuck in it

    Maybe maybe not. Only one way to find out. have a look whilst your hunting for whats causing it. I have found pads wear odd in the past, maybe a small amount of friction material on the inside and nothing on the out side.

    Could be a small stone stuck between pads/disks
