    Default Deep droning noise under moderate/heavy braking...

    Haven't been here for a while as the Vec has been behaving since the DMF incident

    However, i noticed yesterday whilst having to brake quite sharply that there is a droning noise as i come to a stop. It only seems to happen if you come to an abrupt stop, whereas if you come to a gradual stop it doesn't??

    Also to my alarm the insides of the front tryes have worn quite badly, the tyres are only around 7 months old and the tracking seems fine, (no wobble or shaking under any speed).

    Cause i know it's there it's bugging me now, and my g/f has also mentioned it.

    Any takers??

    Droning under heavy braking could be down to warped discs. How do you know the tracking is ok? Have you had it checked?

    Sounds like it may be metal to metal, but maybe just from the rears as you say its when you brake hard. You had the wheels off to check the brake pads?

    Metal to metal, as in pads worn and creating vinyl record with the disc lol?

    Brakes were checked and mechanic says they'll need doing in a few months as they still have plenty on them. Having been out to check the car tonight i've noticed the front passenger tyre pressure as the wheel is pinched ever so slightly as if it needs a bit of air. It's only started recently and i'm thinking i would have noticed a gradual lead up to this??

    I get this under heavy braking on mine, so I'd be interested to know what it is too. From inside the car it sounds like it's the front o/s wheel, but then acoustics can be funny and it could be from any of them I guess. I've had a quick look at the pads and there seems to be plenty left. I can't afford new discs/pads this month, so hopefully it'll wait a while.

    I had a set of tyres on my old Volvo where the fronts wore through to the banding on the insides before I noticed. I'm 99.9% sure it was caused by driving at 'some speed' over the speed 'cushions'/'pillows' in the long straight road leading up to where I live. I always try to keep to the limit going over them now and often take a detour to avoid them completely. Do you regularly travel over any?
