    Default Noise when braking

    guys,
    anyone know what this could be?
    my vectra was making a loud groaning noise when braking hardish.
    had a friend of mine look at the front brakes, all ok (also found out since they were changed 1yr ago), checked rear disks they were worn. changed both the discs & pads.
    went to cornwall for the week, its now started making the noise again.
    im hoping its just the sound of abs & nothing serious but i dont think it is as im not slamming the brakes on.
    doesnt make the sound when gently slowing down but if i brake slightly harder when nearly coming to a stop, it starts.

    any ideas?
